Three Drops from a Cauldron: Issue 16 (June 2017)

Welcome to another issue of beautifully strange and strangely beautiful poetry and flash fiction. This time featuring several pieces with a strong fairytale influence (however upturned those tales might be), and recurring salt-whispers of the sea.

Featuring work by Denise Blake, Noel Williams, Phil Wood, Andy Humphrey, Grant Tarbard, Petra Vergunst, Simon Cockle, Alise Versella, Laura Beasley, Paul Brookes, Judith Taylor, Olivia Tuck, and cover art by Suzanne Rancourt.

Happy reading!

    My story “I Know Not if I Sink or Swim”, which is a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid”, features in this month’s issue from Three Drops from a Cauldron. I could not be more excited!
