Welcome to Goldfish 2017, the annual anthology of writing by Masters students in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths College. 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 extracts from novels.

It is an opportunity to discover new writers as they experiment and challenge themselves. Together we travel to war zones and imagined worlds, interrogate versions of the past, and speculate on possible futures. We hope that you enjoy it.
