Hey ho – I was pondering re-posting an old work and was looking back at past October poems to see what I could unearth, when I came across an old dVerse prompt response from October 2013. I remember writing this, and having great fun, using a discarded newspaper I liberated from the train on my journey home from work!

So, I decided to have another go at flarfing, this time using a copy of the freebie local community magazine, Preston Pages, that hits the doormat every month. Again, all rather random, but that’s the fun. And it works (I think!).

Please do head on over to dVerse to find out what others have offered in this free reign Thursday prompt. I’m sure there will be some surprises for you 🙂

I am published!

I am both honoured and excited to be included as a contributing author in September’s issue of The Woven Tale Press.

The September issue is out today – Vol II #9 – and I’m featured on pages 19 and 20, nestled between some stunning examples of fibre art.

If you’ve not heard of The Woven Tale Press before, here is an extract from their ‘About Us’ page:

“The Woven Tale Press is a monthly e-magazine, a culling of the best of the creative Web.

The Web is teeming with talent. The Press mission is to highlight the blog post otherwise buried in a blogger’s archives; the painting or photograph from an artist’s site worthy of greater focus than its singular web page; the innovative, the funny, the offbeat.

….

Our staff is an eclectic mix of artists, writers and editors with keen eyes for the striking, for those gems deserving to be unearthed and spotlit in The Woven Tale Press.”

There is some amazing artistic talent included this month (and every month) – please do take a look and enjoy the creative journey.

It’s my birthday soon – and this feels like the best birthday present ever! Thank you so much to the Woven Tale Press team for including me this month.
