Welcome to our new project, Altogether Elsewhere, an anthology of new writing about place. Each month we will publish here work that will take you somewhere different, evoke a sense of the ‘elsewhere’, designed to help you perceive things from new and creative perspectives – be it a short story, flash fiction, a section of memoir, or poetry.
Our first piece, published on 28 January 2021, is Learning to Breathe with Trees a compelling personal essay by highly-acclaimed author, Sarah Salway. In March 2020 she was hospitalised with Covid-19 and writes about her experience of finding a place close to home that has become an integral part of her recovery. Her work not only speaks to us in these difficult times but also develops powerful and important themes around our place in our world and the natural environment.
