Soanyway ...

Lisa Stansbie (also currently showing at Window online) is the co-editor, with Derek Horton, of the newly launched online magazine Soanyway.

Soanyway is a extended collaborative meditation on stories and the nature of story-telling: "
We interpret the idea of a ‘story’ very openly, in relation to fact and fiction, narration or implication, and structure or a lack of it. And we regard most history, theory and critique as stories about stories."

A bit of a sucker for the strange eccentricities of history, I particularly enjoyed Keith W Roberts' 'Funeral Meme' in the Now and Then issue. Joe Mawson's 'Heck' in the same issue seems like a beautifully thoughtful work, and I also really liked Horton's 'Citizenship' in the Somewhere and Nowhere issue. Plenty to look at, and it seems that Stansbie and Horton are setting a cracking pace for publication with seven issues produced since the publication's launch in January this year.

“There's a thousand sides to everything - not just heroes and villains. So anyway, ... so anyway, ... so anyway… “So anyway” ought to be one word. Like a place or a river… Soanyway River.”
(Zabriskie Point, 1970, Michelangelo Antonioni)
