Welcome to issue eight of Flights e-Journal.
Many thanks for turning up to read our e-journal and thank you to all who submitted for this edition. We are delighted to be supporting, creating, and curating a diverse community of writers.
Inside you will find new work from Andy Breckenridge whose first full collection, The Fish Inside, we will publish on the 24th March. We’ll be publishing New European Art by Mark Coverdale at the same time so please keep an eye out on social media and our website for news of pre-sales for these amazing collections of poetry.
Both Andy and Mark are examples of the premise of our small press, to invite writers we know to submit rather than to have an open submissions window that, with our limited time resource, we would not be able to manage. Both Andy and Mark came to our notice through our spoken word events and have had work in past issues of Flights.
We hope you enjoy issue eight and are inspired to submit to issue nine.
All the very best
Darren J Beaney & Barbara Mercer
