Issue 06 - 2010

Welcome to Route 57, the University of Sheffield's School of English online writing magazine, a literary journal where students can read and publish innovative poetry, fiction, short plays or scripts, and literary non-fiction of the highest quality.

This is Route 57's sixth issue, and we hope you enjoy reading it. Continuing to publish the most accomplished and talented written pieces of poetry, fiction, non-fiction and drama by the University of Sheffield's English students and alumni, this issue draws on an impressive variety of texts, from the outrageous to the thoughtful, from the weird to the frankly wonderful.

Many thanks to the staff and student editorial teams who collected and edited the submissions for the current issue. Thank you to all who submitted work and to all who have worked so hard to get the issue together. A special thanks to Andrea Nagel and Tom Szekeres who designed the journal, to Mel Evans for the design of issues 3 and 4 (on which this issue's design is based), and to CILASS for funding the whole project.
