The Year of the Rat is an exploration of fraught relationships—between outside forces, other people, and within oneself. The poems in this collection, while varying in style and length, all use vibrant imagery and simple language to strike at the heart of those commonplace battles, failures, and traumas which stick with us forever.

Gabriella Buckner is an American student striving for a career and life in the UK after completing her Creative Writing and Publishing MA from Kingston. She also paints, writes short stories and (starts to write) novels.

Sea Wall – Jamie Toy

BUY Sea Wall (£2.60 + £1.20 P&P to UK Address)

‘Sea Wall, by Jamie Toy addresses both the alienation we face politically today with the desire to overcome our impasses. By taking up desire in its contemporary form, the collection finds refuge in the internal noises of the body, wikipedia and the rivers of Europe. Sea Wall cuts through pessimism and nihilism to offer a potential way out and a creative expression of hope in a digital, political and intra-personal dark-age’

Autumn Colours – Museum of Walking Chapbook 5

During the autumn of 2019, the Museum of Walking invited people to submit a flash writing piece of 250 words (or under) inspired by the colours of the changing autumn season. We were looking for the best fact or fiction stories responding to the Autumn Colours theme and were delighted by the response. Turn the leaves to follow the shifting autumn trail for yourselves.

The winning stories from the competition were judged by N G Bristow (screen writer, director and visual artist running the MA in Directing Fiction at Goldsmiths, University of London), Rebekah Lattin-Rawstrone (author, editor and tutor on the Novel Studio at City, University of London) and Andrew Stuck (Founding Director of the Museum of Walking).
