Welcome to Helen Sandler’s website

Hi, I’m Helen Sandler. I’m a writer, editor, publisher and event organiser. I publish new books by women under the Tollington Press imprint (not currently accepting submissions). 

I run community arts projects and events, from festivals to creative writing workshops. I co-programme and compere Aberration – an LGBT+ arts night in Aberystwyth. I am also a performer with Queer Tales from Wales – bringing to life some surprising characters from Welsh history, researched by my partner Jane Hoy.

I write poetry, short stories and novels, as well as freelance journalism and copywriting. In the past I have set up websites for other artists, too.

If you would like a chat about how we might work together then please get in touch. I’m based near Machynlleth in Mid Wales. Dwi’n dysgu Cymraeg (I’m learning Welsh).
