Far Off Places ‘Submissions are currently open – we’re looking for poetry, prose and drama based around the theme The Second Breakfast.

Despite being based in Edinburgh, we spread our loving tentacles over Europe and across the Atlantic and Mediterranean. Our mission in life is to make you laugh, ponder, and wince.
