There are around 350 creative writing magazines in the UK, but we believe ours is the very best, and here's why...

We founded Gold Dust because wanted to create something fresh and new by publishing off-beat, original pieces from all genres in one place - which is why you'll find a quirky film script alongside an avant-garde poem, followed by the funniest flash fiction - we put it all together and the result is pure Gold Dust! Books

Every issue includes:

  • book reviews
  • author interviews
  • how to write features
  • short stories
  • poems
