Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

Thank you to all our writers - old and new - for keeping ABCTales crammed full of the most wonderful prose and poetry, and thank you too, to our team of brilliant editors and all the others who so generously give their feedback.

For poem of the week, I found myself torn between Accidentallyexisting's 'Boldy a Woman' which reminded me just how much I miss the lovely Bee, and maggyvaneijk's '2016'. In the end maggy just pipped past the post, but do read both if you have time.

Story of the Week goes to newcomer Angusfolklore's 'Those Who Cut the Holly Tree' - a piece with many layers and much depth.

Congratulations to all!

I hope you enjoy the Inspiration Point: 
.. and that you all have a great weekend
