Soanyway online magazine was founded by Derek Horton and Lisa Stansbie in 2009 as a platform bringing together words, pictures and sound to tell stories in the broadest possible sense of the term. Following on from the debut issue, Somewhere and Nowhere, each one was themed around a similar figure of speech, with such titles as Over and Over, Now and Then, Said and Done and Above and Beyond, ending with Over and Out in 2013.
Seventeen issues were published in this first volume of Soanyway. Although these are no longer available online, an archive of their contents is held by the editors. Anyone wishing to know more for the purposes of research should direct enquiries through the ‘Contact’ section of the current site. More than 160 writers and artists contributed to the original version of Soanyway, listed here:
