The Short Anthology‘s Second Issue has launched.
Each issue of The Short Anthology is a collection of short stories based on photography. The second issue is based around 8 photographs Alma Haser took whilst on a trip back to her native Black Forest in Germany. 6 writers then used these photos as the inspiration for a short story. The stories are an eclectic mixture, ranging from an encounter with a strange beast deep in the German forests to the unearthing of a long held secret in a town in Nigeria.
The writers are:
- Susan Sanford Blades, a writer living in Victoria, BC. Her short stories have been shortlisted for the Short Grain contest, the Peter Hinchcliffe Fiction Award and the Alberta Magazines Showcase Awards.
- Gary Budden, co-director of Influx Press and an editorial assistant at Unsung Stories. His work has appeared in numerous journals, magazines and websites. He writes about landscape, punk and more at www.newlexicons.com.
- Abubakar Adam Ibrahim, who lives in Abuja, Nigeria. His writing has been nominated for the Caine Prize for African Writing and his first novel, Season of Crimson Blossoms, was published in 2015 by Parrésia Publishers in Nigeria and Cassava Republic Press in the UK.
- Anna Metcalfe, who had her first collection of short fiction, Blind Water Pass & Other Stories published by John Murray in May 2016.
- Elizabeth Mikesch, the author of Niceties: Aural Ardor, Pardon Me (Calamari, 2014) and the co-founder of ( . y . ) press, an all-girl publishing project. She also performs contemporary folk arias as Fat Friend. She lives in Detroit, Michigan.
