After making me one of six poets featured in their November issue, Cardiff-based magazine The Antagonist have been kind enough to publish my work once again. The piece of flash fiction, entitled 'The Return', was written in early 2008 and I am very pleased for it to have finally found a home in the literary section of the magazine's December outing.
This month's issue is available from antagonistinternational.com in PDF format for only £1.50, so get yourself a copy and support a great independent magazine in the process.
A few of The Antagonist’s contributors, or 'minions', are reading at the Square Issue 6 launch this Sunday (6th December) at the North Star, North Road, Cardiff. The launch of this special Women's Issue promises to be a great night, bringing together some of the best of the Swansea and Cardiff poetry scenes, and I will be in attendance if I can shake off this bout of severe man-flu that has kept me in bed for most of the past week.
Scheduled to read at the launch, amongst others, are a good few of Swansea’s The Crunch open-mic night favourites, including:
Gemma June Howell
Simone Mansell Broome
The North Star are very kindly providing some food and drink to early arrivals, so go along and support what I see as being a wonderful coming together of three great artistic outlets I have been involved with at some point during the last twelve months: Square, The Antagonist and The Crunch.
I hope (hope, hope, hope) to see you there. Best pour myself another Lemsip...
