Welcome to our fifth edition!

 

Over the past four months, since the opening of our last reading period, we have been honoured to consider several hundred works which have engaged with the darker aspects of our existence. The honesty of the creatives behind these pieces reflects openly in their work, which we hope you will take the time to read and appreciate.

 

Shortly after the publication of the fourth edition of Deep Water, we migrated our site to a new HTML5 platform, providing a better mobile experience. However, it remains our belief that the online reading experience is best served by viewing on desktop or laptop devices.

 

We have re-structured the journal to make navigation less of a challenge and hope that you, our valued readers, will find the new format to be a more approachable online experience. Contributors’ bios now appear below their works and all works are accessible from every page.

 

We are most grateful to all who have engaged with us over the past two years (yes, two years!), and – in particular – all the friends who have offered advice and support for what we try to achieve in publishing the material we source. Our aesthetic continues to evolve. We learn continually from the sincerity of our contributors and will strive to improve our offering. We continue to be amazed, moved and grateful, for the opportunity afforded us by Deep Water and we hope you are equally engaged by the talent on show in this latest incarnation.

 

Be safe and happy.

 

Peace,

Tom.
