This third anthology of Maltese writing from Praspar Press showcases new fiction, poetry and literary nonfiction by a selection of emerging and established Maltese writers from across the world.

Snack-size morsels of writing are shared in two halves, Salty/Mielaħ and Sweet/Ħelu, with a bonus sweet ‘n’ salty treat in the middle. At turns deliciously dark and beguiling, these pieces explore our sense of self and the roles placed upon us, helping us uncover the mysteries of life in biting and moreish ways.

Scintillas 3 showcases sharp and diverse poetry and prose, both wry and sensitive, on everything from UK Home Office science fiction to cooking bell peppers.’
—Khairani Barokka
