Join me on my blog to read stories and poems from talented writers in Southern Ontario. If you are a writer in your spare time, or are wondering how to get your work recognized, send your stories and poems for a chance to be published. Stories up to 1500 words or so, poems up to 30 lines or eight stanzas.

Material is refreshed each Sunday which means the website will be under construction for an hour or so, so keep visiting us and send your stories and a short bio if you haven’t been published here before.

You will always retain your copyright and International submissions are welcome.
