Roadside Fiction

We are chiefly searching for contributions from writers who have a few stories, articles or blogs published but will also consider work from those without.

We like realistic material which often draws on real life experience such as travel, work, time spent abroad, relationships between friends or lovers. Describing a city and its inhabitants also interests us. Be funny, rude, honest and don’t hold back.

Write naturally. Do not try to emulate others, instead create your own unique voice. The results will be better.

All work must be fiction. If it has a basis in reality then it must be fictionalised by changing names, places, details and plot.

As this magazine has such a connection with exploration and travel we are particularily interested in contributions from expatriates, those who have lived abroad for a period and have now returned or those who have been lucky enough to travel a lot.
