In its five issues of life, The Alarmist has published acclaimed writers and comics such as Ambit Poetry Competition winner Fran Lock and Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe winner Rob Auton; a number of people who had never previously had anything published before, let alone won a prize for it; and quite a few in between.
Its material has veered from a gut-wrenching and poetic account of infanticide to a missive on the British enthusiasm for queuing; from a haiku cycle in praise of J.D. Wetherspoon to a tale of a lifeguard haunted by an MP3 player with a lasting fixation on classic soul.
