Released 15 August 2014
Like the long-awaited first rays of summer sun, our 'Summer' themed edition has arrived with a bang and, if we do say so ourselves, it's a real literary and visual treat.
The call for submissions for Issue 2 was hugely successful, in both quantity and quality. In fact, we have increased the page count from 32 to 48 to accommodate as much exceptional writing as possible. As well as having much more content, we have moved away from the newsprint and embraced a perfect-bound, paperback format. This is to ensure the amazing writing and stunning artwork inside are shown to their full potential.
While implementing these changes, we have worked hard to ensure that the essence of Firewords Quarterly has remained unaltered. We pride ourselves in creating a publication that is full of powerful short fiction and poetry that is enhanced by artwork and illustrations by some amazing artistic talent. So slap on some sun cream, grab your sunglasses and feast your eyes on Issue 2.
