Popshot #23

Popshot is an illustrated literary magazine that publishes short stories, flash fiction, and poetry from the literary new blood. The magazine is published quarterly. 


The Identity Issue is packed full of the very best prose and poetry exploring how race, nationality, gender, sexuality, family, workplace and friendship impact on who we are as individuals. It cuts deep, with stories about everything from teens turning into pigs, to falling into criminality, and a mysterious display of artistic talent by an old woman with Alzheimer’s. The carefully selected fiction and poetry is brought to life by thoughtful, bespoke illustrations.
