‘Full Circle’ Published by And Other Poems!

I’m so thrilled to share with you all my prose poem called ‘Full Circle’, which has now been published by And Other Poems.

As you may know, I mainly write fiction, but I love poetry. I find I write prose poetry more than any other form of poetry (I don’t know why, maybe I find something satisfying about a block of text?), and I enjoy reading the poems And Other Poems publish. It’s a real honour to have a poem featured there, among so many talented poets.

‘Full Circle’ is about growing up and the lessons we learn along the way, but I won’t give it all away! You can read it for yourself by following this link here: ‘Full Circle’.

I can’t wait to share it with you all! Do check out  And Other Poems as they publish striking poetry, and you’ll definitely recognise a few of the names they’ve published before, such as: Carrie Etter, Tania Hershman, Angela Readman, Jonathan Pinnock, Andrew McMillan, and Hilda Sheehan, to name a few!

‘Lovelorn’ Published in Issue 10 of Unbroken Journal

I love this journal so much. You should definitely read the other pieces they publish and consider submitting your own.

Three Upcoming Publications

I’m sure I’m not the only one this happens to: Nothing, and then, everything! I hope to provide a number of blog updates over the next few days and weeks, but for now here’s details about three upcoming publications I’ve had confirmed.

The first will be very soon. My flash fiction, ‘Buffet’, will be published by the brilliant 101 Words. All of their stories are (you guessed it) 101 words in length, and I enjoy reading the diverse range of stories they publish. They’ve previous published my flash fiction, ‘High Street’, which you can read by following this link here. You’ll have to read this one to find out what it’s about – I’ll post again once it’s been published.

The second is another flash fiction called ‘Handball’, which will be published at the end of July by Cafe AphraThis is another great home for flash fiction of all kinds. This story is about football, but something isn’t right – you’ll see…

Finally, my prose poem ‘Lovelorn’ has been accepted for publication by Unbroken Literary Journal. Those of you who have read previous posts of mine will know how much I love this journal, and this will be my eighth prose poem published by Unbroken. It will appear in their July/August issue, and you’re interested in finding out more about prose poetry, you can read my thoughts about it when I was interviewed by the editor, R. L. Black, by following this link here.

A lot to look forward to, and there’s more, I promise you, but for now there’s only so much I can say…

Three of my prose poems have been published together in the latest issue of Unbroken Journal. They are called ‘Submerged’‘Tempestuous’, and ‘Sequester’. You can find the latest issue, the March/April 2016 issue, but following this link here.
