Cora Vincent by Georgina Aboud - Short Story
A chance break in a West End theatre production forces a derailed actress to confront her demons and offers her an opportunity to escape her past and live life to the full.

The Haunting of Strawberry Water by Tara Gould - Short Story
A gripping tale of post-natal depression, this short story reads like a modern retelling of The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and has much in common with Sarah Waters’ The Little Stranger in its realisation of psychological distress as a supernatural phenomenon.

Stroking Cerberus by Jacqueline Haskell - Selection of Poems
The living have always told themselves stories about the dead, but few of us stop to wonder if the dead ever tell tales of the living. Through the prism of Haskell’s identity as a deaf poet come the themes of communication—or miscommunication—across worlds, languages and between the living and the dead.

Summon by Elizabeth Ridout - Selection of Poems
The experience of living with the adventures and griefs of bipolar disorder forms the focus for this remarkable collection of poetry.

Crumbs by Ana Tewson-Bozic - Short Story
Written in the winding-down stages of a severe psychotic episode filled with manic delusions, this extraordinary story chronicles Julja’s relationship with drugs, family and friends.

Memories of a Swedish Grandmother by Sarah Windebank - Selection of Poems
Feminist, philosophical and linguistically playful poems on identity, motherhood and the family from the perspective of someone with a mixed cultural heritage.
