A new online magazine has recently emerged on the webosphere, promising to publish and promote up-and-coming new writers. It may not be the most high profile web publication out there, but its mission is admirable, aiming to give new writers a voice – a chance to broadcast it to the world and to get some published work in their portfolio. And I say hurray to that.
With everything from poetry and fiction to travel writing and reviews, anyone can submit pretty much anything – so with that in mind, I fired off my review of the thrilling revival of Kafka’s Metamorphosis at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith. With an ingenious set and a remarkable lead actor, I have rarely felt so utterly captivated and unexpectedly moved by a piece of theatre, and its intensity and indeed its strange beauty were truly memorable. Apparently all my gushing was still readable, as The Puffin Review kindly published my review in their first issue.
