A Preface in One-Hundred Words
‘An idea is a luminous thing, and it is light.’
– Thomas Stell
Footnotes III celebrates brevity, being filled with sketches, tweets, poems, micro stories and snapshots, each offered up in one-hundred words of prose or six lines of poetry, or less.
We are grateful for contributions from Denise Riley, Ali Smith, Ocean Vuong, Carol Ann Duffy and John Burnside (and associated agents and publishers). We believe that each and every piece in this issue is truly luminous, and sincerely hope that you enjoy them all.
Limited copies of Footnotes III are available to order on our website.
A huge thank you to everyone who came to our end-of-year garden party in June – here are some (extremely belated) photos from the event.
And finally, thank you to the graduating members of the 2016-2017 Notes Team for putting so much heart into our little publication and family. We’ll miss you, Savannah, Sarah, Amiya, Tessa, Freya, India and Ronan!
