‘Roots’ in the Tymes Goe by Turnes anthology

Robert Southwell’s poem ‘Tymes Goe By Turnes’ was the inspiration for 2020’s annual Solstice Shorts event and associated anthology, organised by Arachne Press. My contribution to the anthology was a flash-fiction story called ‘Roots’, born in a Meg Pokrass online workshop.

In ‘normal’ times I would have read this story myself, at the live event in London on 21st December. 2020 being far from normal, however, it was read on Zoom by a professional actor.

In this short video, I talk about the story, and my writing life.

You can order the anthology here . The whole Solstice Shorts event can be watched on Arachne’s YouTube channel.
