THISIS21 – This is Yourz #2

Picture2So after a bit of a break we’re back with issue two of our literary blog/journal (blournal?), again featuring our collective of writers from the UK and US with a little bit Europe thrown into the mix for good measure. This time around the theme was “journey”.

The UK’s Hope William and Bruno Diaz make their second appearances, both hitting dark and melancholic notes with fiction and creative non-fiction respectively. We also welcome back the US’s Magen Mintz for another short story concerned with the moody heart of American suburbia.

Melancholic and moody are also the order of the day in Dutch artist Laurie Schram’s piece — a black comedy of a road trip featuring an embarrassing father. While Robin Sherwood – another new arrival – gives us a sneak peak at a chapter of his autobiography Ashley Copse featuring a train journey of discovery for his childhood self. Lastly, we have three poems by Harry Wooler, which are beautiful, elegiac and odd in equal measure.

We hope you enjoy reading this new issue and look forward to hearing your feedback. Please comment under each piece, or drop us a line at You can also use this address if you’re interested in submitting something for our next issue.

Thanks for waiting and reading.

Kind regards,

The TIY team.
