Knowing Friday, by Susan Fielding

Creative non-fictionPosted by editor Sat, December 08, 2012 22:06:18

Reaction to and reflection on Knowing Friday, by Susan Fielding.

Born in England, having lived in Wales, Belgium and NZ, Susan currently lives in Melbourne with her husband and three adult children.

She worked in the business, political and not-for-profit arenas combining her years as a full time parent. Her last role was Chief of Staff for a Federal Senator. A life threatening illness was the catalyst that allowed her to indulge her passion for writing, using poetry as a cathartic expression of the rehabilitation process, from wheelchair, to walking frame, stick and finally good health.During those years she joined the local writers group described in Knowing Friday .

The man who fell from the sky, by R A Keenan

Creative non-fictionPosted by editor Fri, November 26, 2010 21:06:20
Reflections on and reactions to The man who fell from the sky.

Brooklyn, NY born, R. A. Keenan, despite his best efforts to the contrary, survived the Age of Aquarius. He is late to the field of writing, and over the past two years has published a dozen or so short stories, mostly in online literary journals, or within the pages of three print anthologies.
When not at home writing or at work teaching, he may be found wandering through the forest covered hills, and hiking trails along New York State's Hudson River Valley, or at his favorite pub, a pint in one hand, darts in the other.
