StepAway Magazine 21

About

StepAway Magazine is an award winning online literary magazine publishing the best urban flash fiction and poetry by writers from across the globe. The title of the magazine draws inspiration from Frank O’ Hara’s landmark flâneur poem, “A Step Away from Them”. Our magazine is hungry for literature that evokes the sensory experience of walking in specific neighborhoods, districts or zones within a city. This is flânerie for the twenty-first century. Our writers will lead our readership through the streets of his or her chosen city. They will do so in one thousand words or less. There are no further rules. We want whatever you can share.
