Our Story and Poem for the month of January, very kindly selected by RJNewlyn:
Pick of the month January 2023
Well done to everyone for another great month’s worth of writing. January can be a little wearying and I don’t think it’s the easiest time for inspiration, so it’s doubly impressive that there are so many excellent recent posts.
For the prose section, do take a look at celticman’s Eejit Knickers https://www.abctales.com/story/celticman/eejit-knickers, rosaliekempthorne’s The Year https://www.abctales.com/story/rosaliekempthorne/year, and jxmartin’s Pictures in the Clouds https://www.abctales.com/story/jxmartin/pictures-clouds, all of which come highly recommended. However,
Pick of the Month goes to Mitchell Jamal Franco’s Profile https://www.abctales.com/story/mitchell-jamal-franco/profile which is simply great writing – the sort of high-concept piece that could easily have become unwieldy but is kept together skilfully and a joy to read.
For poetry, I highly recommend onemorething’s Berrow Sands https://www.abctales.com/story/onemorething/berrow-sands, penny4athought’s Welkin Spirit https://www.abctales.com/story/penny4athought/welkin-spirit, bobblehat2023’s Richard Dawkins in the Curry House (Oxford) https://www.abctales.com/story/bobblehat2023/richard-dawkins-curry-house-oxford and ralph’s Hope’s Eve https://www.abctales.com/story/ralph/hopes-eve.
Pick of the Month, though, goes to Jane Hyphen for She said her name was Winter https://www.abctales.com/story/jane-hyphen/she-said-her-name-was-winter which does a very nice job in welding the seasonal and the personal in the way that only good poetry can.
