, a new generation of writing talent will be given their chance to do just that. In the latest edition of this much-loved anthology, Creative Writing students from York St John University present the very best fiction, non-fiction and poetry to emerge from the revolutionary 'Centre for Writing' initiative; a beacon for independent literary publishing in the North. Readers, prepare to have your expectations demolished and your hopes restored: the next wave of UK literature starts here.
