Luck and Bubbles and Sea

Issue 54 of the Saboteur Awards nominated magazine, The Journal, is now out.

In it you can find two new poems by J.S.Watts: Just Luck? and Bubbles. There is also a rather lovely review of J.S.'s new pamphlet, The Submerged Sea.  To read the poems and the review in full, you'll need to buy a copy of The Journal, but to give you a taster, here are the concluding lines of the review:

"On finishing I kept weighing the book in my hand, surprised by its lightness, seems a far bigger book than its 30 pages: a watery, many-faceted jewel of a collection."

Echoes in The Glass

J.S. has had a brand new story published in Scarlet Leaf Review this month. It's called "Echoes in The Glass" and is a literary tale of magic realism: two writers, separated by time and death, grow strangely closer. You can read it for free here.
