Alternating Current

£12.00

Anthology

 

Alternating Current features thirty-eight pieces of fiction, poetry and experimental writing. We showcase new content from recent contributors, alongside writing from other literary artists. The contributors come from many places, and work in different styles and forms, however, this collection is curated to create a truly cohesive piece of art.

 

At the heart of this project is a collaboration with Andrew Cranston and Lorna Robertson, visual artists with international reputations. Their artworks are integral to this anthology.

 

Ten years after our first publication, we bring readers thi wurd’s most ambitious and expansive work to date.
