A Room of One’s Own

‘A Room of One’s Own’ by Ms Paige Turner

My three year old granddaughter locked herself and a friend in the bathroom. My daughter tried all the tricks in the book to get her to open the door. When finally she said, ‘Right, Maddie. No books tonight!’

Open Sesame. (Reward for all those ‘Tiger who Came to Tea’ and other readings.)

In the light of events, the deadline is extended for another six months until March 31st, 2021. The key to this decision is, well – in the title.

The brief is: poems or prose (fiction or creative non-fiction) up to 200 words. Add a sentence or two about yourself and where you come from. (Do mention any of your word wares.) You can have published your piece elsewhere. An attached Word document is helpful with your name on the submission. And please spread the word.

We are particularly interested in knowing about what has happened in your geographical corner, your work or retirement. This will be a historical document and getting a true reflection of how we are dealing with the pandemic is where our light should shine. So even if you have already submitted, please keep doing so. It’s good to be in touch. Just avoid the word ‘unprecedented’ please.

What do you want to do ?

    Who’d have thought it? So books are not just useful for propping doors open, they can also help get small children out of bathrooms.

    So they can, John – one of my three blog readers.
