Sara Crowley and Valerie Waterhouse are now reading and selecting stories. Here is what they are looking for.
I like fiction that feels like truth and non-fiction that reads like it’s made-up.
I love good writing, but am equally interested in meaningful content that isn’t afraid to tackle big issues and make the personal political. I’d also like to make a special appeal for stories set around the world, especially in Europe, Asia & Africa.
I’d be interested to see pieces that explore:
- Climate change woven into stories of ordinary life in the here and now. (But no futuristic tales of dystopia/the apocalypse, please)
- The relationship between man/woman & nature/animals/plants
- Migration, multi-culturalism, multi-lingualism, identity
- Anything that depicts the world from a different point of view and makes me exclaim: ‘Hey, I never thought of that!’
Thanks for checking us out. We look forward to reading your work!
