Beyond the Walls 2019
An anthology of new fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction from students at York St John University.
York is a city that is impossible to define. A city that contains Roman ruins, Viking remains, a Gothic cathedral and Victorian splendour crisscrossed with medieval cobbles; the identity of York is an ever-shifting thing. Likewise, nestled beyond the ancient walls, York St John University has an identity in flux. Starting life as a Victorian teacher training college to become a vibrant, tight-knit university community with a hotbed of creative talent, the students of York St John are just as in flux as the city. This anthology explores the multi-faceted question of identity, from what you are willing to give up to regional folklore. Beyond the Walls 2019 moves beyond the walls of our city to look at who we are, what we believe in, and the things that scare us. Who will you become after venturing Beyond the Walls?
