Since 2014, Somesuch Stories has been publishing essays and short stories online that offer original insight into contemporary experiences of culture, nature, politics, sex and society. As of 2016, it became a biannual print title too.
Its reasons for existing are simple: to champion unique 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 three print issues are available in select UK, European and Asian stores including: ArtWords Bookshops, Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum, Burley Fisher Books, Claire de Rouen Books, Foyles, London Centre for Art Books, The London Review Bookshop, magCulture Shop, Monocle Kioskafe, Pages of Hackney, Paper Planes, Shreeji Newsagents, The Store (London and Berlin), Tender Books, Ti Pi Tin & online via our distributor, Antenne Books.
