Candle Lit – Created by Shahema Tafader
Welcome, welcome to the first issue of our print magazine! I couldn’t be more excited to introduce the wonderful works (and author interview) included inside. The standard of the creative pieces will make you feel like you’ve licked ice cream in the midst of a heatwave, though that might seem a little paradoxical for an issue themed unsettling.
Inside, you’ll witness the vastness that is human creativity; the many ways in which our contributors have interpreted the theme. We
have horror, both (slight) gore and psychological. We have the unsettling nature of human behaviour, and even a little paranormal
The highlight of our issue is the interview with published author, Ian Ayris. Ian specialises in Urban Fiction and represents, particularly well, the nature of the human condition in his writings. We’ll get to delve into his mind a little in this interview. For the budding writer, I’d especially recommend this section of the magazine.
Finally, I want to invite you to submit for our second issue (theme: Blue). Don’t just be a reader . . . see your work published as a
contributor! I hope to receive your work in my inbox soon, till then – happy reading!
