Some blazing THANK YOUs!

Blazing seems a good word for this post. Appropriately seasonal in a pagan kind of a way. Blazing: crackling and spitting like a split log on a warm fire or perhaps, a series of fresh nicks on tree trunks showing the way through the forest. The people I want to thank share in both these meanings!

So here they are. This is not a complete list but Part One, at least.

Thank you to

  • Claire Trévien, Annexe Magazine, JT Welsch and all of you who came out to support our launches of The Frock Enquiry and The Ruin. I never really know quite what I have made until there is the chance to share it with a community of readers and writers. Also to Lucie Forejtova for her bookmaking artistry.
