Over the last few months, I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in working on Stay Bookish magazine’s latest issue, and I’m excited to announce that issue 5 has just been released today!
Stay Bookish zine is exactly what it sounds like – an online zine all about YA books. The zine includes news, reviews, features, opinion and lifestyle pieces, and featured bookstagrammers and booktubers. The team are huge advocates of diversity, so the issues always highlight own voices authors to look out for and diverse books that are in the spotlight.
This issue includes an interview with Cait Drews (author of A Thousand Perfect Notes) and features about what it’s like to be an international reader, and where the future of LGBTQIAP+ fiction is going.
I also have a piece in this issue about how to help keep your local library open and thriving, and it would mean the world to me if you decided to check it out. You can read it here, on page 68. I’d love to know what you think!
The team have done a wonderful job of rendering this issue, and I think it’s easy to see how much time, love, and care they’ve poured into making it look as professional and vibrant as possible.
If you decide to give this issue a read, hit Stay Bookish up on Twitter, as I’m sure they’d love to hear your thoughts!
