Scotland, as small as it is, exists as a country with a sense of place that varies rapidly, from city to city, and even street to street. With everything that we publish, we hope to transport you beyond the words on the page to the unique place evoked by each writer.

'I'm currently in my third year at Strathclyde and it's one of the most satisfying things I've done. When I'm not at uni or work, I'm reading as many stories and watching as many films and television shows as I can. If I manage to drag myself away from those long enough then I'm probably writing my own stories which gets more enjoyable the more I do it. I mostly enjoy the fantasy and crime genre but I'm open to any well told story.'

'I am currently in second year studying JCW and Spanish at Strathclyde. I have a passion for creative media of all kinds, but poetry, music and video games hold a special place in my heart. I live in the west end of Glasgow and can often be found in Kelvingrove park on a Sunday morning petting a dog or chasing one. I love to cook, although that does not mean I am much good at it, with Italian and Japanese being the main cuisines featured in my kitchen. My favourite authors include Henry David Thoreau, Brandon Sanderson and Hunter S. Thompson to name a few.'
