Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point Fri 22nd July 2022


The weeks seem to be flying by. I hope you all survived the heat. No moaning about today’s rain, please.

Story of the Week

Story of the Week this week goes to not-so-cosy Cotswolds-set “The Bounds” by Charlie77. The start of something longer, this first part is gripping, chilling and blessed with a narrative voice that is very strong indeed.

Do check out Rosalie Kempthorne’s latest, too. Discovery is as off-kilter and unsettling as all her work is.

Poem of the Week

Our Poem of the Week is Catherine Poarch’s lovely, sweet and deceptively simple “Still Light”
