Just a quick bit of news that’s led to an adjustment to the site –
My story “Cottonmouth” has been named as a finalist in Aesthetica Magazine’s Creative Writing Competition so it’ll no longer be available to read/listen to here at alisonearlsALOUD.
Aesthetica is a bi-monthly art and culture magazine based in York (UK) which also releases annuals both in hard copy and digitally and whose remit is to combine “dynamic content with compelling critical debate, exploring the best in contemporary art and culture.” With 60,000 readers and international distribution, it’s an impressive publication and one I’m lucky to have my work included in.
The winner of the Creative Writing Competition will be announced in December and the annual which will include “Cottonmouth” will be available from the 1st of December. However, if you’re interested in subscribing to Aesthetica, you can do so via their website (where you can also purchase individual editions) or, if you’re in Australia and prefer to access it through a local magazine subscription service, both iSubscribe and Magnation have it available. I’m sure magazine subscription services in other countries will also have it in their range.
‘Cottonmouth’ was written specifically for alisonearlsALOUD so I have those that read and support my blog to thank for this piece of good news. I’m grateful to everyone who takes the time to read and listen to stories when they can.
Thanks so much.
