This is us, everyone at TLB, saying a quiet final hellow, and also a big byebye – for we are taking a break! As is customary at this time of the Roman calendar year. We are taking a break to lie down gently and to remove our heads from our bodies for a while, and basically to just not be on the internet as much as possible.
We'll be back 'in the office'/on our emails from January 8th, and will be posting new work from January 15th.
If you are fortunate enough to have some kind of break over this period then we wish you goodwill in your downtime, and if you have to work, we hope it all goes okay.
So long and thanks for all the you – for reading the work we publish in our magazine and on this website and also those books we now publish, for submitting writing and artwork for us to consider, for turning up to our events, for entering our prizes, and for just being attentive and friendly.
We made some lists for you, also:
Our favourite books that we read this year
Our favourite pieces of commentary we published on this website
Our favourite book reviews/literary criticism that we published
And soon it's 2018! 2018. We are so excited to share everything we have planned in 2018. Four more issues of our magazine. Queer Some Space at MPavilion. Lots of new books. So much commentary and criticism on our website. Our Experimental Nonfiction Prize. So many events. And even more.
See you in 2018.
p.s. Buy a copy of our latest issue – it's a really special one.
