Happy to have couple of pieces on the way in the new Lonely Crowd anthology, which features suitably chill cover art by writer Jo Mazelis. The Lonely Crowd is a series of anthologies of fiction, poetry and photography. Publications like this are so important, because they provide a space to experiment and to play with words (and images). Don’t get me wrong, I love the internet but… It’s so nice that The Lonely Crowd exists as a print publication as well as having a healthy online presence. So am really looking forward to receiving my print copy, and leaving it lying around so that friends, family and visitors visit can pick it up, dip in and out, and talk about it, without a smartphone or a laptop in sight!
