The Aesthetica Creative Writing Award is a celebration of innovation across poetry and short fiction, commending writers for their use of form, concept and technique. These winning and shortlisted entries connect readers to a profound sense of self as well as their shared humanity. Emergency threads its way through many of the works – considering the pandemic as well as cultural crises born of inequality and injustice. However, at the centre of these powerful and necessary pieces are tender moments of intimacy and release: friendships, fairytales and romantic relationships told in new ways.
