Issue One

Welcome to the first ever issue of Flights, our very own journal. You can read Flights here by clicking each authors name, or by using Issuu or downloading the pdf, the links are at the bottom of the page.
We were overwhelmed with the quality and variety of work we had to choose from for this, our first issue. It’s exciting to be able to feature work both from writers who have regularly attended our Spoken Word evenings, and writers new to us, and often from much further afield. Thank you to all who submitted.
We’d like to say a really big thank you to, friend of the Dragonflies, Gaynor Kane for permission to use her beautiful painting of a dragonfly as our cover art. 
If you are inspired by what you read here, we take submissions on a rolling basis so you are welcome to submit at any time, we hope to produce the next edition of Flights in September. 
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the wonderful poetry, prose and flash fiction we are so privileged to publish in this first edition.

All the best

Darren J Beaney & Barbara Mercer
