Cinnamon Friends

An exciting new project developed by two of our authors, Jean Harrison and Mavis Gulliver, to enable our authors, readers and followers to get involved with supporting the press to stay innovative, independent and sustainable – publishing the books you want to read.

We’d love you to become a Cinnamon Friend, but you can also help whenever you make purchases online – scroll down to find out how you can make Cinnamon your ‘good cause’ on Easyfundraising every time you shop.

 Become a Cinnamon Friend

  • to pledge your support at a time when pressure on grant funding makes sustainability increasingly difficult for independent presses.
  • to ensure the future of one of the most innovative, independent presses in the UK
  • to show your appreciation for eight years in which Cinnamon has published over 200 books
  • to help fulfil exciting plans for future publications, courses, new competitions, events and launches
  • and last, but not least, to support Jan Fortune who runs the press without drawing a salary so you can be sure that every penny you give will be used to run the press

(you control the amount – we have no access to your account).

Even £1 a month will make a difference, and if you can spare £2, £3 or more it will make a huge difference.
