'Notes from the Underground' is a newspaper that will aim to entertain Londoners with creative writing.

Its content will take the form of several one-off short stories, a serialised longer work, and some poetry. There will also be occasional interviews and extracts from works by published authors and a small amount of non-fiction content. There will also be a visual element to the paper in the form of regular cartoons and strips as well as illustrations in the short stories.

Notes from the Underground will appear monthly for the first quarter of 2008 before moving to fortnightly distribution in March. Each issue will have a theme, aimed at giving the paper cohesion without being restrictive. This will fill a gap in the market that the other free London newspapers have left, namely the potential for a publication that can entertain and divert during an otherwise mundane journey. Further, we want the paper to provide a genuine resource for the community of readers and writers in London.

Our first issue, themed 'The Bleak Midwinter' comes out on the 17th December and includes new short stories by William Boyd and the crime writer Peter James. It will be handed out outside 35 central London tube stations as well as in branches of Foyles, HMV, public libraries and independent bookshops.
