The editorial team at Halfway Down the Stairs is proud to be publishing our 50th issue, in our fifteenth year of publication. But it’s not just this issue we’re proud of – we also have a beautiful back catalogue of work which deserves to have light thrown upon it.

It’s become a tradition with us now to highlight some of our favourite pieces – our cellar door, if you will. We introduce you to some of the editorial team’s most loved poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction at the links below. Sit back, relax, and settle in for some fine wine.
