Kit Caless and Aki Schilz co-founded the LossLit project in the summer of 2014. The project ran initially on Twitter, with the hashtag attracting hundreds of contributions from around the world and a Storify of curated ‘highlights’ reaching thousands of views in a number of days. Now, the Twitter writeclub runs monthly, and all tagged contributions are shared from the @LossLit account. The magazine is in its early stages, and we hope to have a print version in the future.
Welcome to Issue Two of LossLit Magazine. This is the first issue for which we operated an open submissions policy. We received a high number of submissions of impressively consistent high quality, and were pleased to see such inventive and diverse works, all taking their inspiration from the central idea of ‘loss’.
