Popshot #24

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 Escape Issue is a collection of vivid writing about getting away; from real danger and metaphorical prisons. Our writers wrest free from relationships, time and life-threatening situations. The stories and poems included feature escaped jaguars, flamenco classes, magic mushroom tea and monsters.
