Seethingography Chapbooks

Seethingography is lucky enough to be able to publish local, place-based writing, via Sampson Low, an esteemed publisher, with a wonderful and long history. For more information on Sampson Low  go to their website.

Here is what they have to say about chapbooks:

“The tradition of chapbook publishing in England is a long established one and here at Sampson Low Ltd we think it’s the perfect format for our most exciting authors and artists. Although small (A6) and relatively brief (16 printed pages) our punchy publications share their ideas with you in one delicious sitting.”

The Seethingographer #2 Summer 2017: Going Home

The Seethingographer #2

A collection of writing and images on the theme of ‘Going Home’.

A word from our guest editor Sinead Keegan…..
Reading through the submissions for this issue of The Seethingographer was a peek behind the curtains and around the corners of the spaces people call home. These pages are filled with the nuances of what it means to go home, from Alan Boyce’s gritty reality of homelessness to the hearth fairy of Julia Rose Lewis. Sometimes we find ourselves on the threshold, neither home nor away from home, as in Roger Leege’s ‘Fast Food’ which showed me a moment from my own childhood, and Maite Lisa Jordao’s permanent liminal emigrant existence ‘Coming Home’. Whether you know the places described, or they are alien, like Jim Lawrence’s cosmic view ‘Super Ape’, at the heart of all the pieces is the home we all know or perhaps long for. Enjoy the journey. Enjoy the homecoming.

Kingston’s Apple Story by Alison Fure

Kingston’s Apple Story By A Michelson’s Seedling

Alison Fure

I am apple. I am somewhat ovate, my skin is thinly strewed with minute brown dots, interspersed with slight patches of delicate russet; but faintly mottled on the side exposed to the sun. My ‘wassail’ or pomological tale begins when orchards thrived in the districts of Norbiton, Hook, Chessington, Coombe and Tolworth; well before the closure of the Apple Market.

Alison Fure is a field ecologist specialising in bats. She is a director at Kingston Environment Centre and a licence trainer for the London Bat Group. She believes that orchards can help soften the impact of urbanisation; if each child could plant an apple tree – in their name – it would halt the spread of ‘green desert’.

Villiers Path: Scalloped Time Chapbook

Villiers Path: Scalloped Time
Lucy Furlong

Take a walk down this historic narrow foot passage in Surbiton. Will you meet the ghost of the beautiful young Lord Francis Villiers, killed in battle here in 1648. Villiers Path runs between Hollyfield School and the back gardens of the houses in Cranes Park, coming out half way down Surbiton High Road. It is where Lord Francis Villiers died in a skirmish on Surbiton Common on 7th July 1648, in the latter part of the English Civil War. Over hundreds of years, as Surbiton has changed and grown, the path has narrowed and become hemmed in. Where was the famous tree, engraved with a ‘V’, which marked the spot where the young and beautiful lord bravely defended himself until death? Poetry and photography from Lucy Furlong.
