The ask was simple: to visit one of an A-Z alphabet of Cornish places and produce two responses – a sestude (a poem of exactly 62 words) and a longer prose piece exploring the place’s name and history. As well as members of 26, a number of well-known Cornwall-based writers were asked to take part, and the Cornish language expert Kensa Broadhurst contributed an introduction looking at the linguistic and historical influences that have shaped the names of the region’s villages and towns.

Julia and Tom then invited Cornwall-based photographers to visit the same places with the writers’ words with them to inspire their own creative responses. And the result was a beautiful book, designed by Graphic Design students at the university, and an exhibition of poetry and photography that opened at The Poly in Falmouth just ahead of St Piran’s Day in February 2023.

This book is not available from the 26 website. To purchase a copy of the book, priced at £15 plus postage and packaging, please email admin@26.org.uk so we can put you in touch with the project leads.
