And it’s brown. Yes, brown. Poo coloured.
But also chocolate.
In Issue Nineteen you’ll find cover author Rob True, Holly Watson, Craig Ledoux, Siobhan Denton, Susannah Heffernan, a guest editorial from Farhana Shaikh, and of course N Quentin Woolf is on duty too, ever the nightwatchman of Open Pen’s pages.
Congratulation to those writers, and thanks to everyone that submitted. The shortlist ain’t so short these days, it takes some really gut-churning calls to leave out so many interesting pieces every issue. Please do keep submitting. (Maybe we should do something worthwhile like double our page count for Issue Twenty.)
More soon on when to expect Open Pen Issue Nineteen to hit shops. Until then, Charlie Brown being sad.
