Formed from a core group of friends who met on the MA Creative Writing course at Birkbeck, the group has had enormous success with publication of their short stories internationally in anthologies and magazines such as Tell Tales, Storyteller Magazine, Pulp, The New Writer and x magazine. Two members of the group have major books coming out in the next twelve months.
