Issue 6 of Fly on the Wall Press’ magazine is out now! My poem Dinner is included. Order your copy from https://www.flyonthewallpoetry.co.uk/
Today is the release date of pamphlet Growing Pains by Isabelle Kenyon.
In ‘Growing Pains’ Isabelle Kenyon navigates the grey space between child and adult. From the playground wars with worms, to the value of a woman’s body as she learns to take up her own space, this collection values kindness in what appears to be an increasingly cruel society.
Available to buy from Fly on the Wall press or the publisher Indigo Dreams Publishing
If you’re more of a fiction reader Isabelle also has had her short story The Town Talks published by Wild Pressed Books this month
Isabelle is the editor of Fly on the Wall Press. A socially conscious independent press.
Fly on the Wall Press have chapbooks available and anthologies packed with great writers. The anthologies raise money for various charities.
Their forthcoming books are packaged in a subscription as well as sold individually. This seems like a good deal to me. I’m really excited about these books.
