Goldfish is the annual online anthology that showcases the work of students on the Creative and Life Writing MA at Goldsmiths, University of London. Goldfish celebrates a thriving community of writers and expresses the diverse range of voices on the MA programme. It includes poetry, short stories, life writing, and novel extracts. It is an opportunity to discover new writers as they experiment and challenge themselves throughout the process of the MA. 

We hope that you enjoy journeying through this year’s anthology, and getting to know the characters, worlds and times presented by the students of 2018.

We also hope that you’ll join the MA students at the official launch event for Goldfish 2018 at Goldsmiths University for drinks and readings from a selection of this year’s students.
