Originally published on Reedsy Discovery. Guerin’s narrative switches between the past and the present as his protagonist, Walker, attempts to reconcile his memory of his summer job when he was nineteen, and how far his father was involved in the disappearance of a Mexican family.

Maggie is an artist and Marta … Continue reading Review of Maggie’s Ruse, Anne Leigh Parrish
I woke to the rain painting the windows; abstract polka dots and rivers. I woke to the silence of sleep, your body beside me, wrapped in cotton sheets; your breath whistling to and fro. The rule is: whoever wakes first makes the coffee, so I slip on my dressing gown and my flip flops … Continue reading Sunday: morning coffee
Originally published on Reedsy Discovery. Flores' memoir is a stunning collection of prose and fragments which, through the use of the ocean as an extended metaphor, document the end of two relationships and the beginning of another when all is thought to be lost. "But so much of any love is questioned because of other … Continue reading Review of We Died in Water, Meg Flores
The afternoon stretched its limbs into the evening, leagues past noon: a sky the texture of candy floss and the colour of a brewing storm. Wind buffeted the waves as the tide retreated far out, slipping away from the estuary and into the ocean’s recesses. Wind buffeted my face, spinning locks of hair … Continue reading Saturday: on a bench

Several days ago, I promised myself I would write more. Prose in particular. I even began by writing ‘write’ on my to-do list (because I write more to-do lists than poems these days). It remains unchecked. A gloomy, dull circle waiting to be ticked; to be acknowledged by my brain fumbling around its inner recesses … Continue reading To-do lists
I imagine you see us as a bridge to be crossed. A small adventure from point A to B with no regard for maps or the geography of the land; how my summit reaches higher into the sky, moated round with ravines dressed in jagged edges. You pay no heed to the warning signs. The … Continue reading Point B.
