My latest collaboration as part of the Clockhouse London Writers is out now!

I Sing the Body Acrostic, linked attached below is part of another fine issue of Sein und Werden!

In other news I’ve had a short ‘Interference’ accepted for the October issue of Morpheus Tales, watch this space!


Check out the latest Sein und Werden, it has a very interesting theme ‘Black Out’. It features found texts redacted and adapted to make new and thoughtful pieces. Poetry, prose, art and multimedia pieces. Includes the Clockhouse London Writers collaboration ‘Songs that Won the War’.

The latest Sein und Werden, on the theme of Mappa Mundi is now online!

It features two Clockhouse London Writers collaborations, ‘The Map to Nowhere’ and ‘Mind the Map’, writers involved in these collaborations are Allen Ashley, Gary Budgen, Rima Devereaux, Sarah Doyle, Robin Lupton, David Turnbull, Sandra Unerman and, er, me.

Check out the latest issue of Sein und Werden, featuring one of my short stories, a ‘poem’ and collaborative flash fiction with the Clockhouse London Writers here:

I was so pleased to hear that Sein und Werden, under the guest editorship of Jason E Rolfe was to feature OuLiPo.

OuLiPo basically involves writing with restrictions, such as Georges Perec’s novel A Void, which omits the letter ‘e’.  Equally impressive in a way is the translation of the full text of the novel from French to English, doing the same.

For more detail about OuLiPo check out the issue of Sein und Werden itself, or

For what OuLiPo means, check this out:

Basically, I was pleased when submissions were called for this, for where else would I place a story that (mostly) leaves out the letter ‘i’?  I love OuLiPo writing, because far from being academic, writing with a constraint such as leaving out ‘i’ forced me be more inventive and thoughtful in the words I chose.  I’d recommend it as a workout for any writer.

Pleased to be a part of the very interesting online magazine sein und werden again, this time as part of a collective effort with the other members of the Clockhouse London Writers!

Link below, read it it’s a lot of fun and free:

This is a collaborative piece of writing I was involved in, as part of the Clockhouse London Writers: Allen Ashley, Madeleine Beresford, Gary Budgen, Nick Wood, David Turnbull, and Sandra Unerman.  This was a lot of fun.  Basically it’s a technique pioneered by the Surrealists, it’s just like when you play that game where someone draws a head, folds over the paper, passes it to the next person who draws the body, and so on…

Here it is, published in the latest issue of Sein und Werden:

Collective story to be published.

Another collective work from the London Clockhouse Writers – including my own contribution!


I was pleased to receive my contributor copy of the latest Sein und Werden today.  The latest issue of the magazine of experimental Art and Literature, guest-edited by Rhys Hughes features my flash fiction Under the Clockwork Sun.
