In Praise of Short Attention Spans

Issue One November 2019

In This issue

This is the debut drop of The Lit, exploring publishing and storytelling in all its forms. Issue One finds us in praise of short attention spans. Of poems that won’t sit still. Of single clause stories daubed on walls. Of hooks that get you in an instant. We peer through the cracks in our concentration to explore the post-digital landscape. Time is tight. Attention’s expensive. Are you with us?
