Issue 19 – The Romance Issue
Our nineteenth issue comprises a heady mix of illustrated short stories, flash fiction and poetry encapsulating the yearning, the promise and the excitement of romance. There are more pages and stories than ever. Inside, we’ll find a surreal tale of a party at a zoo, a satirical guide for reigniting the passion in a relationship and a moving meditation on the emptiness after a break-up.
