Solas is the fifth annual anthology from Stryvling Press, featuring poems and short stories from the University of Stirling’s MLitt Creative Writing class.
Celebrating the five year anniversary of Stryvling Press, this anthology explores the inevitable ebb and flow of life and how we must adapt to its challenges. Featuring stories and poems about modern love, the first dog in space, the forests of Scotland, and so much more, Solas takes us on a journey through the hard winter and into the promised warmth of spring. In this collection of both poetry and prose, we see a reflection of ourselves as we battle through grief and hold on to love. With beautiful imagery and hard-hitting honesty, the University of Stirling’s MLitt Class of 2022 holds our hand through the bitter cold and brings us into post-pandemic life with a renewed sense of hope.
