Letter From The Editors

Letter From The Editors

Dear Reader,

We are delighted to present to you the eighth volume of our annual anthology, From Arthur’s Seat. It is an in-house project entirely produced by the MSc Creative Writing cohort at the University of Edinburgh. This year’s anthology comprises a medley of pieces by writers and poets from various parts of the world. It has been an absolute pleasure to be able to curate and compile their brilliant work into the book that you now hold. We were blessed with a wonderful team and we would like to thank each and every one who gave their best for this project.

From our editors and copyeditors who helped polish and fine-tune each piece, to our art team who created the beautiful cover and illustrations within, to our marketing team who helped raise funds, generate interest locally, and organise events across the city; and last but not least, we would like to give big thanks and a warm hug to our managing editors, Olivia Duff and Zain Rishi, who were a constant support throughout this massive endeavour. As well as a special thank you to Ryan Van Winkle and Patrick Errington; their guidance and encouragement was essential in bringing this anthology to fruition.

We hope you enjoy reading this book as much as we enjoyed producing it.

Happy reading to you!


Rasika Bhale and Austin Crowley
