MEDIA AND REVIEWS
"In these pages, we discover new, exciting voices of the future. A heady mix of story and poetry, prose and word-smithing is captured by the editor and offered to us as Fresh Ink 2019. Fresh indeed are the likes of Lorraine Marson's story, 'A Winter Journey', which with sharp eye and nuanced turn-of-phrase, examines the complexities of women's relationships. Fresh too the dazzling poetry of Alexandra Fraser, Michael Giacon, Elizabeth McRae, Jenny Clay and Paul Hewlett. Indeed each piece here offers a high-point, the whole a gathering of new songs, new stories, welcome delights."
