First New Poem of The Year

Issue 2 of Mistress - an online journal of poetry and short fiction by women - is now available to read, FOR FREE, online and you will really want to...

Amongst some very fine work is a brand new poem by J.S.Watts, "The Witch of Walkern". The poem takes its inspiration from historic events in Hertfordshire, in the UK, involving one of the last women to be tried and condemned as a witch in the early eighteenth century.

You can read about the real, historic events on Wikipedia and via the Walkern History Society
