Cora, Cora, Cora

In February last year, I shook myself out of a difficult winter and wrote a long short story for the a competition. I thought, I really like the idea but I’ve not done it justice. On 1st April I got a lovely email (April’s Fool no? Surely….) to say I was one of six writers chosen for the gold dust opportunity to be mentored and have my story published. A year on, many redrafts and lots of guidance from the lovely folk at Creative Future, Myriad Editions, New Writing South as well as Laura Wilkinson and I attended the inaugural Spotlight series launch with 5 brilliant prose writers and poets. My contribution is called Cora Vincent (if you fancy it), or if not be sure to check out the others in the series, the themes and styles are so varied and interesting that you’d be pushed to not find something to get your chops into.
