the Periodical Issue 4

Hard on the heels of the Periodical issue 3 we’re excited to announce what’s in this month’s package;
The first publication is Whisker #1, edited and published by our very own Hazem Tagiuri, author of many a post here.

Whisker is a pocket-sized literary magazine that showcases new poetry and short fiction, often from previously unpublished contributors. It has a tactile sense of merit: instinctive, curious, unconcerned with fixed styles, rigorous entry criteria, or authors’ backstories. Just fresh, fine writing that invokes feeling; that strikes a nerve.

We’ll be selecting future issues of Whisker to include in issues of the Periodical so get in touch with Haz to submit your writing for consideration.

Alongside this is a treat from the archives – Waiting For Crisis by William Davies, first published in 2009 as part of our Diffusion Transformations series. Will is Assistant Professor at The Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies, University of Warwick and wrote this piece a year on from the banking collapse that triggered the present double/triple recession/Greater Depression. It was printed as a special edition when bookleteer first began to offer the larger A5 book sizes and our Short Run printing service.
