AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Seizure, the newest journal for new writing. What we're doing is creating a biannual magazine that collects short works of fiction, narrative non fiction or poetry themed around a particular genre of magazine. It's a magazine where editor-in-chief, Alice Grundy, rounds up new authors and gets them to write on a theme, like Food or Sci-Fi, and then gets the crew at Xou to create stunning and amusing visuals to compliment the text, so it is not just a meal for the brain but a feast for the senses.'

In 2013, Seizure became an online only publication. (Website: )


  • The Seizure website also includes 'Flashers'. 'Flashers' is publishing work between 50 and 500 words that could be written in an hour or read in a minute.'
  • From 2013, contents from Seizure online are indexed from the monthly archive.

     Indexed comprehensively until 2017. Due to resourcing issues, this periodical will no longer be comprehensively indexed.
