Just a quick note to let you know that our wonderful Killings columnists will be taking a break over the next fortnight as we prepare for the launch of the July issue of Kill Your Darlings. In the lead up to the official unveiling – Monday 21 – we’ll be running teasers from the issue on our blog. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at our brilliant designer Guy Shield’s striking No.18 cover.

Purchase a 12 month subscription to KYD and read through our online archives before No. 18 is revealed in full on July 21.
