September starts with my flash fiction, Glen Abbot and the Green Man, published in Weirdyear Magazine. As the magazine title suggests, this publisher caters to flash fiction of the stranger kind.
Flash fiction is a nice middle ground for poets who are branching out into writing fiction. At less than 1000 words, it’s manageable to write and bite-sized enough to read on a phone or tablet – perfect for the daily commute. Feel free to check out my latest piece while you’re stuck in traffic somewhere… next to the signal preferably!
About Leilanie Stewart
Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
