Far Off Places

Far Off Places is a magazine featuring creative writing and illustration which ran from 2013 to 2018. Despite being based in Edinburgh, we spread our loving tentacles over Europe and across the Atlantic. Our mission in life is to make you laugh, ponder, and wince.

We hope to reach, enchant and grip readers who wouldn’t ordinarily pick up a literary magazine - which is why Far Off Places has appeared in audio and digital. We believe in bedtime stories and beautiful craftsmanship, where choice of font and paper type is an artistic decision.

Do make a scenic detour to check out our final issue, But there is no end, filled with farewells and new beginnings. All of our issues available to devour are listed below (aren’t they pretty? We think so.) - click on the link to get your paws on shiny copies! And if you’re curious but not quite sure if this is for you, you can always download one of our free tasters.
