Seasons of Story

An online literary journal devoted to books, art, creativity and seasonal delights.

Reading together through the seasons...

Seasons of Story is an online journal that celebrates the beauty, inspiration and joy to be found in each season.

I'll be sharing specially commissioned articles and poems by fabulous writers, as well as pieces written by me and my equally bookish mum, Donna.

My wish is that the content you'll find within Seasons of Story will spark many moments of connection, inspiration and quiet contemplation throughout every month of your year.
