An unexpected excitement startled my writing life recently.
The London Magazine – ‘ England’s oldest literary periodical, with a history stretching back to 1732’ – contacted me recently to tell me that a piece of mine would be published in its online edition.
It was such a happy surprise as the piece, written originally for a competition run by the magazine, had been posted into the entry box weeks earlier. When I heard nothing I assumed it was gone for good … but here it is.
The piece is not long and is about some of my own encounters with silence and its consequences. I hope you’ll have time to try the link. To do so please click on the article title below.
