Crossroads brings together writers from the United Kingdom and the United States to explore the experience of life's inevitable changes. It shares the experiences of the young student travelling abroad, the long-time resident of a neighborhood looking at the changes time has produced, the immigrant considering the traditions brought forward into a new land, and the wonder of long-time friendships. In the process, Crossroads demonstrates a common lived experience that speaks across the Atlantic and towards the possibility of continued dialogue.

Crossroads is the second publication produced by the Trans-Atlantic Worker Writer Federation, a joint project by the FED and New City Community Press. The first publication, Pro(se)letariets, explored the experiences of working-class students in the United Kingdom and the United States.
