The Longmarsh Press

The Longmarsh Press is a small independent publishing business committed to high quality fiction and non-fiction.  It was founded in 2008 by Totnes writer Bob Mann.

In the near future we intend to publish new fiction by Daisy Fox, Sam Richards’ history of Dartington College of Arts, books by Bob Mann and new editions of works by Sabine Baring-Gould, Vian Smith, M. P. Willcocks, R. J. King and others (for more information on some of these authors, see ‘Articles’). Longmarsh Press publications will also soon be available as e-books.

The Longmarsh is a much-loved recreational area reclaimed from wetland, stretching for a mile beside the River Dart in Totnes, affording fine views of the estuary and town, and rich habitats for wildlife.

‘Bob Mann is a passionate and committed writer and publisher. Literary Devon owes him a great deal.’

Joanna Briscoe, novelist.

Some days, the fragments are all that I have …’  read more
