Welcome to the fifth in our new series of writers meetings, offering an informal, critical space to test out new work. Our fifth featured writer is James Hatton, presenting from a novel in progress, Outside a Cigarette Walking. Told through its narrator's faltering memory, James' novel stitches a detective story into the murky backcloth of a global pharmaceutical conspiracy.

Different Skies is an open community of writers and collaborators. We welcome submissions and proposals for our publications and events.
Our platforms offer a home for hybrids, a space for writing that falls between the political, the critical and the creative. We publish a heterogenous mix of critical essays, creative non-fiction, free-prose experiments, life writing, long-form journalism and reportage. We look for words that are alive and full of images.
Writers should check out our previous issues before submitting to us. You can read Different Skies online, but the best way to experience the publication is to order the paperback.
