    Writing in 2016

    2016 has been another good year for me and my writing, and I’m grateful to all the platforms that were willing to publish my work. From flash fiction to short stories to prose and found poems to football pieces and book reviews, there’s a bit of everything in there. Features Capote’s Christmas.
