For issue 55 we’ve put together the work of 42 writers, 9 short stories and 33 poems. Normally we’d be at The Crane celebrating another new issue. But for now we have to be content with doing it online. It means you’ll have to buy your copy from our website here. We thank you in advance for your support and hope you enjoy our selection of fiction and poetry for our autumn 2021 issue.
