Xanthi Barker’s drug-infested tale of murky heroes and murkier bonds is a well-delivered stroke at post-University culture.
The story will appear in Issue Five of Open Pen Magazine in all your favourite book spots by mid-May.
Xanthi, currently living in London, has had her stories appear in The Scribe and The Cadaverine. She has also written features for Spike Magazine, Time Out and London Confidential.
In addition to Love in the Time of Ketamine, congratulations are extended to David Gill for his piece Mother’s Day, Remie Purtill-Clark for her tiny play (and our first to be published) The Ice-Cream Robbery of Sherkin Island and Jamie Collinson’s short Inherent Sick.
