Following on from my New short story and poetry critique blogs! post on Sunday, I’ve since posted two guest poems, which have both received several likes and comments, and will be posting the first guest short story today.
I was toying with the idea of having a forum (and do mention my Forum) but have also set up Facebook Groups for both. If you’re on Facebook and would like to join in, do pop along…
Last night I also set the first set of 15-minute exercises on the short story site…
- Sentence start: Feeling the movement in the…
- Keywords: potato, Monday, press, more, window
- One-word prompt: Frail
- Mixed bag: doctor, horse-rider, potato peeler, cemetery, lost (dilemma), shy (trait)
Click the exercises link above for a full explanation. You can do them any time and they’re stored in Exercises if you miss any.
So, if you write short stories and / or poems do pop by. Because they’re writing groups I’d especially appreciate feedback on what you see and it’s a community “where readers and writers critique each others” poetry / short stories. :)
Next up is my interview with memoirist Julie Greene.

As I post an interview a day (amongst other things) I can’t unfortunately review books but I have a list of those who do, and a feature called ‘Short Story Saturdays’ where I review stories of up to 2,500 words (and post stories of up to 3,000 words), or posted for others to critique (up to 5,000 words) on the new Morgen’s Online Short Story Writing Group. Alternatively if you have a short story or self-contained novel extract / short chapter (ideally up to 1000 words) that you’d like critiqued and don’t mind me posting it online in my new Red Pen Critique Sunday night posts, then do email me. I am now also looking for flash fiction (<1000 words) for Flash Fiction Fridays and poetry for Post-weekend Poetry and Morgen’s Online Poetry Writing Group.
