Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

It's so great, as we celebrate our twentieth birthday, to see that the quality of work on ABC is as brilliant and varied as ever.

Story of the Week goes to Peter Bennett's 'A Hauf an a Hauf'.  It takes skill and courage to use dialect as your narrative voice, and Peter manages it brilliantly with characters that leap off the page with warmth, humour and pathos:  A Hauf an a Hauf | ABCtales

No doubt at all in my mind about the Poem of the Week - the very welcome return of Seashore with the beautiful 'And So It Is'.  A poem of sadness, compassion and humanity:  AND SO IT IS | ABCtales

This week's Inspiration Point is here:  Inspiration Point: Writing Cues To Battle Writer's Block | ABCtales
