FLIGHTS e-Journal (issue seven)

Welcome to issue seven of Flights e-Journal.

It’s hard to believe that we are now at issue seven. The depth and quality of the work we receive constantly amazes us. We are delighted to have received more prose submissions for this issue, please keep them coming. 

We are also particularly pleased to be able to reproduce The Universal Ugly Tranny by Alice Denny. Alice, who originally produced this piece to deliver as a speech, shared this work with us at our last spoken word evening in the room in Brighton. We believe it is important that it reaches a wider audience.

Since our last issue we have published our first two single poet pamphlets, Body Talk by Niki Strange and Flammable Solid by S. Reeson, these are available for sale in our shop

We also delighted to say that we have nominated to both Best of the Net and the Pushcart Prize. Congratulations to all, these were not easy decisions to make.
