"Bare Fiction (issue 1)" by Robert Harper (ed)

It's a Kickstarted, 80 page, A4 magazine of poetry, prose, plays, articles and reviews, with work by Dan O'Brien, Fred d'Aguiar, Roger Garfitt, etc. This edition appeared in Dec 2013. In their guidelines they write that "We feel that playwrights get a raw deal in literary magazines and we’re here to change that once and for all". On the page, plays like those of Fox and Krivisto struggle to compete with prose. I liked Neil Bebber's "Breathe" though.
