Story and Poem of the Month

Our Story and Poem for the month of October have very kindly been chosen by onemorething. Here's what she says:






It’s a huge pleasure to choose the Picks of the Month. However, there is so much great writing on the site in the course of a month that it’s always a hard job!

And yet, gongs have been awarded!

For Story of the Month, we must return to the start of October and Jane Hyphen’s A Real Doctor. It’s hilarious, makes me smile just thinking about it and very well written. I love its quirkiness.


There are many other gems, of course, and honourable mentions must be made of these pieces of writing:

Celticman’s Ugly Puggly has continued throughout October and is just great writing.

Ed Crane’s The Trials of An Angel has also seen us through October – excellent storytelling!

Also, cssquirrel’s surreal is very much worth reading.


Poem of the Month is Lenchenelf’s Center of its own Universe which is so perfect that it brought a tear to my eye. It’s just wonderful.


It was closely followed by Di Hard’s tree time which is brilliant and also very moving. Sometimes it is painful to choose!


I think mention should be made, too, of Angusfolklore’s poems in October. These two were so good:


And, of course, Lem’s very powerful poem:


Best wishes for a good November to all.
