Welcome to Trufflehog!

Trufflehog is a social enterprise set up in 2009 by Marc Lintern of Plymouth University, working with Helen Greathead, a children’s author. The aim is to provide real world experiential learning for university students in the competitive world of publishing. This is achieved by generating sponsorship to commission children’s books which are then written, illustrated, designed and published by our students.
