Last month was Women’s History month and I was thrilled to see that a poem from last year’s First Story anthology by the excellent Judgemeadow Community College was shared across social media. ‘Your mother’ is a great example of the creativity and soul of the students who produced ‘I right Inglish more goodlyer then u.’

I’m a bit late posting this link here to the poem, but that’s my bad; March can be the cruellest month for deadlines that drag you away from what’s important.



As for this year’s crew of young writers, I am currently neck-deep in assembling their wonderful work into another corking collection of vibrant creative writing. Of which, more later.
