Poetry Evening at the English Bookshop in Gamla Stan

Screen Shot 2013-04-17 at 9.58.01 PMStockholmers, I only just found out about this but some of my friends from the Stockholm Writers Group will be part of a poetry evening at the English Bookshop in Gamla Stan (Lilla Nygatan 11) at 7PM.

The poets who’ll be on hand tomorrow are Ron Pavellas, Paddy Kelly, Rebecca Lynn Foreman and Daniel Sikazwe.

Unfortunately, I can’t go but I hope many of you will attend and show your support for these very talented writers!

Happy reading (and writing)!


Discover Spark: A Creative Anthology

Screen Shot 2012-12-20 at 4.11.22 PMSpark: A Creative Anthology is a quarterly literary anthology that I found out about via Kickstarter. They’re currently accepting submissions for Volume One, which I am going to order. 🙂 If you write flash fiction, short stories, poetry or creative nonfiction, then you should check them out. They’re also looking for photography and artwork for their front covers.

And…Spark’s got a writing contest. Write a story (fiction or creative non-fiction) or poem based around the word “spark”. Submissions will be accepted from 1 January to 1 March 2013 and first prize is $500 USD, a year’s subscription to Poets & Writers Magazine, a year’s subscription to Duotrope and a lifetime premium membership to Scribophile.
