Good morning folks,
the bells and whistles of spring are starting to sound. As such, seasonal haiku generated as below…
Huddled through winter
In a homespun cloak of bark.
Swelling buds of spring
and nodding, baby-blue bells,
Things I’ve read this week…
Chris Hall’s opinion piece ‘Why I Think I’m a Feminist‘ is a really thoughtful discussion of her own experiences in the world of work. I’m a regular reader of Chris’s and enjoy her writing so I am perhaps biased, but I thought this was so quietly powerful and understated.
Another author whose work I go back to again and again is J.R. Gaskin. There is never a word wasted in his atmospheric pieces of flash fiction, and ‘Hybristophilia‘ is a perfect example of this.
Matthew Richardson is a writer of short stories. His work has featured in Gold Dust magazine, Literally Stories, Close to the Bone, McStorytellers, Penny Shorts, Soft Cartel, Whatever Keeps the Lights On, Flashback Fiction, Cafelit, and Shooter magazine. He is a doctoral student at the University of Dundee, a lucky husband, and a proud father.
Not necessarily in that order.
