Crossing Borders

Bold new work from exciting writers

The ILS commissioned new work from 30 exciting writers to explore the theme of 'Crossing Borders'. The brief was deliberately ambiguous and broad and we were hoping for a diverse range of responses - which is exactly what we got.

Spanning poetry, fiction, non-fiction and graphic biography, the new work ranges from political and social realities to notions of transgression and the exploration of boundaries. We're publishing a new piece every week.
