Posted by Insertponceyfrenchnamehere on Sun, 05 Jul 2020
Our Story and Poem for the Month of June have very kindly been chosen by Philip Sidney:
I thought I knew exactly which two pieces I would pick for this month – but thought I’d better have a proper read through of the month’s offering - and dug up a treasure trove. Thank you so much to all of our contributors for a wonderful few hours of reading!
I have remained with my original choices but I have so many additional recommendations too!

For a few of my other favourites, do visit (or revisit) these wonderful poems:
I know – that’s a lot – but believe me it’s a fraction of the wonderful pieces I’ve found. There’s something rather special to be discovered in all of the poems above.
Story of the month goes to Airyfairy with her perfectly timed account of the life as it is lived now. Writing humour is a real art – especially when the topic isn’t actually funny, but she has a special talent for it.
Once again I’m being greedy – but there really has been so many brilliant pieces – and I have some must reads for you. Two are from captivating series which are really on a roll:
Also, do read this moving and uplifting personal account of managing a crisis within a crisis:
Do enjoy them all, but a very special thank you to Lavadis and Airyfairy for their wonderful writing!
