Far Off Blog

April 2013

Nature tamed and nature tangled

Far Off Places is all about fording rivers and sending messages in bottles. We want to follow a trail of breadcrumbs up to the front door of a friend we haven’t met yet. So we were delighted to read this intriguing interview with Elizabeth Dearnley (author of the suspenseful The Sugar House in our first issue), written by fellow contributor Kristina Wojtaszek. Take a read to journey into medieval gardens and discover why roses aren’t always benign.

April is the cruelest month no more.

While the story keepers were busy reading the wondrous and wonderful submissions for Issue II, we had to find something to keep the layout whizzes out of mischief. (They tend to colour on the walls with felt tip if we don’t keep them occupied.)

The result? One shiny, free (free!) teaser copy of Issue I of Far Off Places. So if you’re not quite sure that this is the magazine for you, or if you’re a penniless poet eating watered down cabbage soup in a garret, fear no more - just click on the link here for your fix of written whimsy. (Did I mention that it was free?)

Don’t say we’re not good to you.
