Some of you may have noticed that both the Monday quote and the Saturday prose poem were a day late: my apologies. I’m getting a number of things set up, and hope to have certain people do tweet reviews on the Tuesday and Thursday. Watch this space!

Also, while I am well-stocked on the more serious pieces for the Wednesday, I am in dire need of more humourous pieces. So if you want to increase your chances of acceptance, do try me with funny pieces!
