Metrofiction features writing by emerging authors who are located in and around the city. The site was established by Margaret Larkin, author of the novel Wicker Park Wishes, which will be published in 2021 by Eckhartz Press. Margaret is also the creator and publisher of Down the Block (read the book at the About page). That book features writing about cities and has a foreword by Mary Beard, who is a professor at University of Cambridge and is an editor for the Times Literary Supplement.
