"It is fairly conventional for images of serial killers, axe murderers and Norman Bates prototypes to manifest whenever the word 'psychopath' is mentioned. However, psychopathy is a much more complex disorder which is not only detected in the criminally insane, but is found to be common in many members of wider society." Laura Di Blasi delves in to a mind, re-wired, for The Under Age


VWK97-Cover-image-lowresVoiceworks #97 'Habit' The nonfiction of ‘Habit’ takes us through cycles of addiction, and repressed memories before giving us a glimpse into the world of pre-pubescent throat singing. The fiction moves from transmogrification, to the quest for the perfect white t-shirt, to the refusal to write an obituary. Our visual art and poetry gives us an insight in to the rhythm of sewing and the true meaning of white noise, before putting a sinister spin on a popular children’s rhyme.

'Habit' is available now to order in PRINT for $10 (plus postage) or coming soon as an EBOOK from $4.99. Order your copy here

Hologram is a publishing project by Express Media. Two fresh novellas, by writers under 30, have now been released.

Holly Childs' 'No Limit' is a book for everyone who’s ever been delayed, half-alive, grounded with no place to sleep. A novella about the internet age, told in sugar-rush prose.

Elisabeth Murray's 'The Loud Earth' is a story set amid dark cellars and crisp ski runs, rushing water in grottoes and whiskey by firelight. It's about a recluse with a violent past, and a stranger who comes to visit.
