Here’s our line-up for the seventh week…
18th February – 22nd February 2019
Monday: Christine Leviczky Riek, Issue 20

Tuesday: Claire Gregory, Issue 14
Claire’s been everywhere, and her worldliness has informed her interests and her writing. She has been spinning stories all her life, both in the pages of her fiction and in her career as an archaeologist and historian. She combines her Irish storytelling heritage, a deep love of her local Australian landscape, and a particular interest in the darkest edges of human conflict, to explore the ways people lived and loved in the past. Her story, ‘Forget Me Not’ was the winner of the 2016 Surrey International Writer’s Conference Storyteller’s Award and was published in Issue 14.
Wednesday: Colin Thornton, Issue 14
Life has a roundabout way of leading one to writing. Colin Thornton studied drawing and painting in college, and played music for a few decades while he built a career in advertising. Now he’s settled into writing short stories, one of which you can read in Issue 14, titled ‘Candy-Apple Baby’.
Thursday: Conor Powers-Smith, Issue 3
Conor Powers-Smith grew up in New Jersey and Ireland. He currently works as a reporter on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts. Despite being a vocal Yankees fan, he has not, as of this writing, been murdered. His stories have appeared in AE, Daily Science Fiction, The Fog Horn, Nature, and other magazines. His short story, ‘Love For Sale’, appeared in Issue 3.
Friday: Cristina Crocker Escribano, Issue 9
