Printed in full color on high-quality paper, issue #7 boasts work from poet Maggie Smith (author of the viral “Good Bones” and several collections), flash fiction guru Kathy Fish, and a slew of outstanding debut talent, like Steven Dunn (author of Potted Meat). This issue also features an interview with debut novelist and BuzzFeed News writer Doree Shafrir, plus a full chapter from Startup, her new book.
We are thrilled to include a breathtaking original comic in F(r)iction #7: “Hollow” by Lilly Higgs presents a lovely wooded world, rich with magic and ancient Scandinavian lore. Follow Ildri and Ylva through the beautiful forest, where countless adventures are sure to abound!
F(r)iction #7 also features poetry from the Afghan Women’s Writing Project, an organization that supports the voices of women whose stories may otherwise remain untold. The AWWP helps empower women through writing, cultivating skills that help make change in their communities and their own lives. You can learn more about the Afghan Women’s Writing Project at http://awwproject.org.
