Since 2014, Somesuch Stories has been publishing essays and short stories online with the aim of offering original insight into contemporary experiences of culture, nature, sex and society. As of 2016, it is also a biannual print title.
Its reasons for existing are simple: to champion emerging voices and celebrate long-form writing; to go a small way to countering intolerance of o/Others by highlighting shared facets of humanity – and to entertain, of course.
Our first two print issues are available in select UK, European and Asian stores including: ArtWords Bookshops, Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum, Broadway Bookshop, Charlotte Street News, Claire de Rouen Books, Foyles, Kubrick Cafe (Hong Kong), Libreria, The London Review Bookshop, magCulture Shop, Monocle Kioskafe, Pages of Hackney, Rococo News, Rough Trade East, The Society Club.
