Literary redemption in Somesuch Stories
Suze Olbrich is the editor of Somesuch Stories, the literary magazine that covers a vast range of subjects including nature, sex, society and spirituality in its aim to reflect, “the full contemporary experience”. It looks a lot like a paperback book, and in this conversation Suze speaks about the pleasure she gets from seeing it popping up in different places, alongside both books and magazines, quietly carrying its short stories and creative non-fiction to new audiences.
This issue is built around the theme of redemption, and Suze also speaks about her personal experiences of making the magazine, with all the challenges that entails, and the strategies she has found for overcoming and coping with those difficulties.
