'Her mother was calling but Clare ignored her. Clare was in the corner of the backyard behind the shed looking for dead insects. Clare knew it would be an order to do another chore. She was busy sucking on the lolly that she had taken without permission, and she was picking her nose. She looked up and saw her mother’s hand come down on her arm. Clare let out a cry and wondered what it was for – the lolly or the nose picking? Then the hand came down again and she knew it was for both.' (Introduction)

    'For those of you who have submitted and read the previous incarnation of StylusLIt, Stylus Poetry Journal, thank you all for your good wishes for the new publication. StylusLit includes more genres to accommodate short fiction and creative non-fiction, two genres which I think are generally overlooked. On our team is Andrew Leggett, fiction and creative non-fiction editor, Alison Clifton, reviews editor, while I am poetry editor.' (Introduction)
