The Flight Journal Issue 4, edited by Henry Brefo, JJ Bola and Remi-Lyn – the Spread the Word Flight Associates for 2017, is on the theme of SPACE(S). It features the short stories, chosen from many, of the five winning writers; Hermione Cam (A Newcomer’s Guide to Earth), Anthony Ferner (Let’s Play), Ruth Ivo (Spring Time, SW9), Leon Craig (The Starry Chamber), and Christina Fontes (Tale of Mamiwata). The editors chose the overall winning story as The Starry Chamber by Leon Craig.

Issue 4 also includes a featured piece of writing from writer and poet Anthony Anaxagorou, and photographer and cinematographer Jolade Olusanya. We gave them the theme of SPACE(S), open for them to interpret as they wish, and for them to contribute, in their respective art forms, pieces of work that corresponds. We then aligned them with the existing pieces that appear in the issue. You can read more about this in the editorial.

We hope you enjoy reading Flight Journal Issue 4. It has been a creative challenge putting it together, but a lot of fun in the process. We’d like to thank all the contributors, and of course, Spread the Word for providing the platform. Please feel free to share the journal among your network, social media, friends and family. And give us feedback on what you liked via our contact page.
