May Update: The Pigeonhole, Neon, Archipelago, and Lunar Poetry



This month, The Pigeonhole were kind enough to publish my story “Blue” – a lengthy fairytale about lesbian pixies. The Pigeonhole is a relatively new publisher that does things a little differently – books and collections are published serially, in “staves”, with new content being delivered each week. Readers are able to have staves delivered direct to their devices, and can also discuss stories and explore extra content. My story appears in Fable, which you can pick up for just £0.59 per stave. Another of my stories appears in Sex Staves, an earlier collection by The Pigeonhole.

I’ve also recently put together and published issue forty of Neon Literary Magazine. This month marks the magazine’s ninth birthday. I never thought I’d reach either milestone, and so I’m immensely pleased that Neon is still going strong. Copies of issue forty are available from the website.

That aside, I’ve been continuing to work on Archipelago. I’ve found a rhythm to the process of writing for and updating the blog, which to date holds one-hundred-and-forty tiny stories. Read or sign up for email updates here.

Finally, the editor of Lunar Poetry – where several of my poems appeared a few months ago – is currently fundraising to start a dedicated poetry bookshop. It’s an excellent idea, and it deserves all the support it can get. The Indiegogo campaign is still running, and can be found here. Please do give it a look!
