imageI am in my mid 60s, on the last lap of a life that has been a journey of experiences, mostly of normality but also of sad, sometime heartbreaking periods, funny moments, moments of high hilarity. These experiences inform my writing. I began my writing career by contributing stories to my daughter’s blog, memoirs about my life and her childhood. Joining a writing group mentored by the poet James Morgan Nash has led to an interest in poetry and fiction writing. For most of my working life I was a designer, so while not well schooled in formal English, l enjoy the craft of writing. Using words and phrases I see there is construction and architecture in the creation of poems and stories.

My book Memory Spill, a memoir of my childhood in Scotland is available on Amazon. I have contributed to The Pulse of Everything, an anthology of poetry and prose and I am a regular contributor to the American literary website The Drabble.

  1. Thank you for your comment. As you will know from my ‘End of term’ post I am fairy new to fiction and poetry and I have liked the challenge of writing 100 word fiction. I have looked at your site and I find it refreshing and informative that you reveal your writing thought processes. Since setting up my blog I’ve been inundated with a tsunami of blank verse bloggers! It’s great to find someone with a wide range of writing genres.


  2. Hi Sandy Wilson, I dropped in from the Drabble post and found some interesting read. I am Krishna Prasad, Editor, The Wagon Magazine, a monthly print journal, published from Chennai, India. Its digital platform; http://www.thewagonmagazine.com. Please visit and read. If you like what you see, you are welcome to contribute your short fictions and poems. Thank you


    1. Hi Krishna. Thanks for contacting me. I’d love to contribute to The Wagon Magazine. It looks good. Unfortunately, all my current work has been published either in my own blog, in The Drabble and other internet site. Also our writing group publish anthologies of our collective works. So I can’t submit anything at the moment. But I will submit the next decent piece of writing to you before I publish it elsewhere. Best regards. Sandy
