BwS Quarterly Review and MIND

My poem, Spring's Uplift was chosen for inclusuion in the second QR by the editors of Bewildering Stories.
I'm delighted to be there once more. And from what I've read so far, it's an excellent Issue. John Stocks is there too - that;'s two of us from the North East of England

I also had a message from
Vagabondage Press LLC
New Directions in Art & Literature
to say that my story Hidden would be included in an anthology of writing from people who have suffered depression or mental illness. Did I want to use my real name? I told them definitely! I have never been diagnosed with depression but I have suffered from it nonetheless and I think it is a thing that people suffer in silence and it affects a lot of lives either directly or indirectly. Of course sometimes it has a definitive cause - but that does not lessen its effect. So when this anthology comes out, please buy a copy and support MIND. It is a worthy cause!
