Featuring 27 pieces of writing from young people from the West Midlands, Rosanne had this to say about the issue, ‘Perhaps my favourite aspect of reading these submissions was how many pieces make you question the world around you. The writers who have submitted to this magazine are between the ages of 8-20, and yet they raise questions that adults ignore or accept as a normal part of life.’

To me, that is great writing’.
