Well this is it, the last day of 2016. What an incredible year we have had, four new volumes, two broadsheets, our competition and a host of live events. We cannot thank you all enough- those who have shared their work with us or supported our events and journal. You are all incredible and you make every moment of joy and frustration (at the printer mostly) completely worth it.

We have one more gift for you to end this incredible year. Our last volume of the year has gone out to subscribers and will be available for sale here on the website in the first week of January. Until then we have a digital celebration of the poets and flash fiction writers whose glorious words fill the pages. Each piece has been read by the writer. We hope you enjoy these words as much as we have. We wish you all a happy new year and look forward to seeing you in 2017.
