As you may have noticed over the past few weeks, the blog has been subtly changing hands! Scribbly Roo, our delightful illustration expert, will be stepping in as I head off to Boston to do some studying and teaching at Boston University’s writing program.

It’s been a fascinating experience to work with all of you, to judge the wonderful entries of our recent short story contest, to review your books. By far the most interesting part of it all has been getting to know you writers and reading your work. I’ve read such a variety of styles, situations, genres, voices and it has shown me how uplifting it can be to expose oneself to new things with an open mind.

So keep writing, everyone! As Kurt Vonnegut wrote once – “It’s the emptiest and yet the fullest of all human messages: ‘Good-bye.'”
