Writing short stories and poetry is an essential part of me as a writer. Completely different styles of writing that express emotions and narrate what moves me the most. I’m not quite at the top of my poetry game, as you can probably tell by the samples below, but short stories – well, I’m nearly there, whether written directly into the laptop, or in longhand.
I have been commended, highly commended, shortlisted and longlisted for both genres in the past and after a year dedicated to perfecting my craft, I will recommence submitting to competitions and publications very soon.
Two stories figure in the “Portsmouth Fairy Tales for Adults” anthology and I have been selected to appear in the “Closure” anthology which will be published in September 2015. I am also working on a collection of Anglo-Indian stories, not quite finished yet!
