Maria Shanina is a literary translator and a university lecturer from Russia. After coming across a book by Ray Bradbury on the art of writing, she decided to challenge herself to write her first story in English. Now Maria grabs a pen to draft every time she has a break. Her stories have recently appeared in Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine and Foliate Oak Literary Magazine.
We are a non-profit organisation that provides a platform for intercultural writers. We want their work to reach as many people as possible and therefore don't charge readers for the magazine. Want to help us?
