Well, hey there!

Last Friday our YuStart project came to and end; we have succesfully raised £611, so we will be printing, publishing and celebrating Volume Five. 

Hopefully all sponsors have received an email of thanks and with some information about rewards; if you've sponsored and have not heard from us, please do email us at lookingglass@yusu.org and we'll sort it out!

By the end of this week we are planning to have our final contents page for Volume Five sorted and so next monday we will be going into proofreading and production - we'll keep you posted all the way from here to publication.

A massive thank you for all of your support!

Good Evening!

We're getting close to the end of our YuStart campaign, so a massive thank you to everyone who has pledged so far! We have just £34 to go until we reach our minimum target and we need to reach this target in order for use to recieve all the pledges that have been given so far.

If there's someone who you think would like to support this project, you have until midnight on Friday to get them on board! And remember, any pledges that we get over our minium of £400, the more extra special we can make Volume Five!

Once again, we are so thankful for your support.

'I'm watching freshers take the lead;
their parents trail, arms laden with boxes and bags,
wheeling cases - the next year unpacked
from mum and dad's car boot.'
- from Week O, Luke Connolley, soon to be published in Volume 5.

Hello there, all you wonderful supporters,

Thank you for helping us to make Volume 5 the best it can be!

Since this project started we've been continuing to work hard as an editorial team to make this volume the best it can be. We currently have 24 confirmed pieces in the anthology, with the outcome of 56 submissions still to be decided – it’s shaping up to be a great one!

We’re so appreciative of your support and would love it if you could keep on sharing this project over the next couple of weeks, we’re relying on this crowdfund to produce Volume 5.

Thanks again, stay excellent!

‘The cold was biting into his chest. Spring had come, they told them, and a patrol had to be organised. There were paths that needed walking and posts that needed resupply. He had seen spring. That was not it. The snow was knee-high, and the Thirteen-damned hills and becks of this blasted place were turned into icy traps for unwary feet. But his eyes were always peeled and his sword was always ready to fly.’ – from Eyes Wide Open, Rodastin Nanov, soon to be published in Volume 5.
