Have you picked up your copy yet? #TheBigIssue #FictionEdition
A fresh copy of the Big Issue fiction edition.
Traversing themes of race, identity, body transformation, forbidden love and coming of age, this year’s fiction edition includes commissioned work by authors Garth Nix, Marija Peričić, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Melanie Cheng and Tony Birch.
Eight stories were also chosen through the open submission process, which this year received more than 400 submissions. Work by writers Atul Joshi, Dasha Maiorova, Eleanor Limprecht, Elizabeth Flux, James Hughes, Laura Elvery, Melissa Manning and Natasha Buzzacott was chosen through a blind reading process by guest judge and author Graeme Simsion, Big Issue books editor Thuy On, and writer and editor Nicola Redhouse.
