The 2016 collection includes poems, short stories, life writing, and novel excerpts that together circle the globe from London to New York, Singapore to small town Wisconsin. They are stories in which we fall in love, then fall out of it again. Together we, alongside their protagonists, face the uncertainties of a partner’s death, the awkwardness of a first date not showing up to the pub. We learn, we grow. Things, rarely, turn out as simple as they once appeared to be.

These are those stories, and we are thrilled to share them with you. Each author page includes their full-length work as it was submitted to the anthology, as well as a brief biography and their direct contact information. Please, stay a while — we’d love to hear what you think. Find us on Twitter.

Last year's anthology is available as Goldfish15.
