Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

We have had an avalanche of amazing work this week - thank you so much for posting it, and thanks also to the lovely editors who help clear the spike each day - i'm so grateful to you all.

There are so many good poems, it's been exceptionally difficult to choose just one, but in the end I've gone for fatboy74's wonderfully chilling Rooks

For prose Drew Gummerson's brilliant series continues, and we have a new story just started by airyfairy which is also a must read. Our Story of the Week though is piss test by cliffordben502 - a moving and completely authentic child's eye account of a difficult life.

Here's this week's Inspiration Point - I hope you have fun with it!

Don't forget to register for the upcoming reading event - and in the meantime I hope you all have a great weekend smiley





It must have been so hard choosing this week. Do people volunteer to be editors?


It was very hard Di!
