Short fiction about LGBTQ+ shooting victims. 

Grateful to have been pointed toward this story by Justin Torres. Not so much for the repetition, for the fact that the phrase 'If you’re lucky' carries the weight that it does.

Tickets for our school’s Christmas raffle went on sale today. One of the prizes is £50 towards a tattoo. A real tattoo. I love Brighton.

It’s too much to ask, understanding another’s intent. It’s enough to define your own boundaries, corral your own demons. “Now what do we say to nice strangers who help us?”

A little tale from me about fitting in on your own terms, in the lovely Lost Balloon mag

Tomorrow I start getting ready for a little
something I’m hosting in Brighton on Saturday 😉☕️🥐✍️

Art lovers, I'm running hour-long ekphrastic workshops once a month.

I share two artworks in each session - December's featured artist may get you thinking about diary entries, and one of the artworks features a unicorn. There will be time to write in response to each and the opportunity to share what you've written if you would like to.

The most excellent Electra Rhodes is joining me at The Flash Cabin tomorrow! She's running her brand new online The Ocean's 11 Theory of Story: Five Fantastic Fundamentals of Fabulous Fiction
