A short story I wrote, Community Spirit, is in this issue of Trawler, a Southend-based magazine. Here’s a synopsis:
Cicely has never even dressed up for Halloween before, but this is the year to join in with the local trick or treating.
If that doesn’t prompt you to run out and grab every copy you can find, I don’t know what will.
The current issue is the ‘arts issue’ with some great poetry and spotlights on local artists (and it’s free woop woop). You can pick it up in various shops and places in Southend, so keep a look out when you’re out and about! And skip to page 30 immediately.
