All That Glitters
Edited by Leone Ross
All That Glitters is about the things that go on in private spaces, both tender and toxic. It is also about the aftermath; the complex reckoning that occurs when people count their blessings, even after disappointment. You can also find other stories: some straight-up talk about menopause, a date that lasts fives minutes by design, a bus ride in Hawaii, and a mermaid apocalypse. All that glitters may not be gold. But finding the right response to disappointment is the stuff of life: defiance, tenderness, chances to learn and grow seized, a sense of humour. There’s treasure in these pages.

The first issue of Roehampton University’s regular journal for student writing, The Rook, is about what we build, both good and bad. Misfires, breakdowns, the chemical crush of a date rape drug – these are results of build-ups. But the same is true in reverse. Relationships are built up from character and choice, to create something meaningful and special. The Rook is the stockpiled result of these students’ creativity and industry.
