This month sees the launch of the first issue of UK literary magazine Firewords, that features, alongside thirty one better writers, my flash fiction piece, The Courier.
The editors eloquently describe the project thus:
“Firewords was set up by a small group of creatives, frustrated by writing magazines that concentrated on substance over style, or vice versa. Firewords Quarterly aims to have an abundance of both; powerful writing enhanced by bold design – leaving pretension behind.
We believe there should be a better platform for exciting new writers to have their voice heard and remembered. We also think a literary journal should be easy to pick up and dip in and out of; a rich, immersive experience that takes you to another world. This is why, for a long time now, our dream has been to create this magazine.”
Firewords can be bought online from their site, they ship worldwide and it is a venture that deserves support.
