Welcome to the first issue of Writers in Conversation for 2016. As ever, we are delighted to include here a range of writers who are truly global, hailing from Poland, Denmark, Jamaica and Australia; a mixture of poets, novelists and academics, with many awards won between them. We feel privileged!
The journal is now in its third year and we'd like to thank everyone who reads and enjoys the interviews, and of course those who work so hard at putting the interviews together. Remember - we are always looking for contributions, so don't hesitate to contact us.
The interviews in this issue address many very topical questions about writing and politics in the global arena. We have very much enjoyed putting the issue together, and we hope you enjoy reading it.
Gillian Dooley and Nick Turner, Editors
