3, no. 1, February 2016:
to the first issue of Writers in Conversation for 2016. As ever,
we are delighted to include here a range of writers who are truly
global, hailing from Poland, Denmark, Jamaica and Australia; a mixture
of poets, novelists and academics, with many awards won between
them. We feel privileged!
journal is now in its third year and we'd like to thank everyone
who reads and enjoys the interviews, and of course those who work
so hard at putting the interviews together. Remember - we are always
looking for contributions, so don't hesitate to contact us.
interviews in this issue address many very topical questions about
writing and politics in the global arena. We have very much enjoyed
putting the issue together, and we hope you enjoy reading it.
and Gillian Dooley,
