    All Shall Be Well Something a little different, this beautiful anthology introduced and edited by Sarah Law.



    Back when I was just beginning to write poetry a friend suggest I submit to Southlight Magazine, she lent me a few copies and I liked the format, so I gave it a go. Having those first one or two pieces chosen by an editor made me realise that I could do this; that a stranger found what I wrote meaningful enough to want to share it with others gave me confidence to keep going. I still had a lot to learn about the submitting process, but I think I will always come back to read and submit to Southlight.

    Very please to have another poem featured in Amethyst Review, inspired by a furry friend.Amethyst Review – New Writing Engaging with the Sacred (
