THE ESCAPE ISSUE IS HERE
The Popshot editors are pleased to introduce the latest instalment of our journal, The Escape Issue!
We asked our contributors for writing about escape in all its forms, from disappearing to warmer climates to slipping out of terrifying, difficult or mundane situations.
The submissions we received were of an extremely high standard. This was brilliant, but it made our job difficult to select the short stories, flash fiction and poetry for inclusion – thank you to everyone who sent in their work.
In The Escape Issue our writers wrest free from relationships, physical constraints, wriggling out of time and life-threatening situations. The stories and poems included feature escaped jaguars, flamenco classes, magic mushroom tea and monsters.
Whether you’re reading the magazine on the beach, during the commute, or over coffee on a Sunday morning, we hope you enjoy escaping into Popshot.
