Sugared Water #001

We’re pleased to announce the release of Sugared Water‘s inaugural issue!

This collection of poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction is something we’re proud to offer up to you. As readers, we were delighted to take these works through the process from our submission period through to binding by hand. The contributor copies are winging their way across the world in small batches—we think they’ll be well loved. Our cover illustration was inspired by the very first piece of flash fiction we accepted. (You’ll see when you crack open a copy!)
