Stimulate your imagination and discover the stories and poems within. Immerse yourself in the beautiful illustrations created specifically to enhance each piece of writing.

The theme of this issue is Curiosity, and our writers have tackled it head on. Whether it be the curiosity of a 2D dog that springs to life nonetheless, the grudging realisations of an eighteenth-century minister, a black inquisitiveness into mortal affliction or a rural small town where the place name speaks for itself, we delve inside the writers’ minds to discover what curiosity means to them.

What makes you more curious than an unopened package? Our cover artist, Guillermo Ortego, created something special for this issue and has somehow managed to include all our past covers in the illustration! The cover captures the story of our evolution from Issue 1’s very first hand-written envelope.

Firewords is the magazine of fiery fiction & poetry brought to life with visual flair.

'We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.'
– Walt Disney
