Ephemera Subscription

Ephemera is Hour of Writes’ monthly magazine, providing a fresh, creative literary response: both to the world today with the best, most original writing–as-it-happens from the themed weekly competitions, and the wider experience with columnists writing on diverse subjects, all with a literary connection, such as lost poets, composers, bohemians and politics. Magazines are hand-mass-made, and produced in a special narrow format for ease of reading on the move, or storing in a bag. Subscribe now, to get yours delivered each month!

Mountains: Oblique Angles

Hour of Writes’ first book, and contender for the Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature.

A 360 degree emotional and literary response to the idea of mountains, every piece in this book was written in an hour or under on the Hour of Writes website. The result is a lilting, musical collection of writing from self-professed writers and non-writers, mountaineers and urbanites from across the globe.
