Today's first review is also Sunday Zine Review's first literary zine. I have reviewed some zines and magazines featuring poems and short stories before, but this is the first time I showcase a zine only focusing on writing.
Paper and Ink is a small "DIY" zine edited by Martin Appleby. Inspired by the fact that e-books are now outsellling printed books, Martin wanted to "create something real that can be read again and again without relying on battery power to deliver its message".
Paper and Ink's first issue is called "Broken Hearts and Broken Bottles Vol 1" and comprises a series of poems and short stories around this topic by a bunch of great writers.
The first issue is a limited edition of 100 copies, if you want to purchase one you can do it on Paper and Ink's Etsy shop.
