New for 2021!


Looking through our archives this week, we realised just how many quality pieces of fiction Platform has showcased over the last six years. 


Every month we are going to trawl the Platform archives and pull out one of our all time favourites to feature right here on the front page. 

First Editor’s Choice piece to be revealed soon!

'Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself.'  

Truman Capote
