Ink, Sweat & Tears

My short story “Dumb Creatures” has been published in the Ink, Sweat & Tears webzine. Ink, Sweat & Tears was started in 2007, and is now edited by Helen Ivory. It publishes poetry, prose and artwork online on a daily basis – its entire archive is available to read for free. It also funds a pamphlet competition and a poetry-writing scholarship at the University of East Anglia each year.

“Dumb Creatures” first appeared several years ago on the Volume Blog. It’s a brief story about a man who kills penguins, which I wrote while I lived in Stoke-on-Trent. Although it might seem otherwise, I actually quite like penguins.
