Clinical, Brutal: An Anthology of Writing with Guts

“Clinical, Brutal: An Anthology of Writing with Guts is a collection of works in both poetry and prose that encapsulates the ethos of Clinicality Press and the essence of Clinical Brutality as a mode of writing.

Featuring some of the most exciting up and coming writers, as well as a number of more established cult figures, this collection is a short, sharp shock: clinical, brutal, cutting edge. It’s all about those small, everyday random acts of violence, not all of which are physical or even necessarily entirely tangible, that are common to us all, written in blood using direct, precise and powerful language. There’s more to Clinical Brutality than violence and gore, and there’s no shortage of humour to be found in the poems and prose pieces here.

This is writing for the post-CSI generation. It’s not for the faint-hearted.”
