The Centre for Youth Literature run a conference called Reading Matters, which is all about children’s literature. It’s a biannual conference and it ran over the past four days. I was invited to speak there and it was The Best. (I could only attend on the Friday, which makes me eternally sad).
There were SO MANY cool people there and I had a blast, so here’s some word vomit.
Plunge magazine is a new e-zine that publishes short genre fiction and poetry about queer women. Issue one’s theme is Women and Mythology. It’s available online for free, and you can find it here:
This is the magazine that I won the competition for! My piece is in the flash fiction section and is called The Keepers.
My prize for winning the competition was the piece of art that’s on the same page as my story and isn’t it PRETTY. It’s the coolest thing to have someone read your work and then create something. I am still swooning.
