The A3 Review is a magazine that behaves like a map and is created by the people who make Writing Maps, those illustrated fold-out posters of creative writing prompts and story ideas. The prose and poetry in The A3 Review is drawn from the winning entries of a monthly writing contest. Two winners per month, over six months, are then published in the magazine that comes out twice a year.
Winning entries make up a shortlist of 12 writers who are then in the running for cash prizes: 1st = £150, 2nd = £75, and 3rd = £50.
The A3 Review is edited by the writer Shaun Levin. Issue #1 launched mid-September 2014, and Issue 3 will be coming out in September 2015.
Everything in The A3 Review is written in response to a themed monthly contest. Word limit is 150. It’s quick and short and intense, and we aim to keep publishing brief and energetic work in a format that’s easy to carry around.
