Pankhearst was a collective of independent writers. Formed in 2012, we existed to develop and promote new writers, and to learn while doing. Mission accomplished. Mischief managed.
In 2014, the Guardian said that Collectives such as Year Zero Writers and Pankhearst offer the best hope that self-published authors can produce innovative, challenging writing and ensure that all literary forms and genres are represented, for all readers.
In 2015, Urban Tabloid said we were one of the best literary magazines for emerging writers.
And sometime in 2016, somebody on Twitter said we were mostly quite pretty.
Pankhearst died in the summer of 2016 of complications arising from musical differences and neglect. We didn’t notice until Halloween.
