A Spot of Writing was created by the team at Weston Writers’ Nights in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The magazine contains short-stories, flash fiction, poetry and non-fiction by Somerset based writers. Underpinning every piece is a profound sense of hope for the future.

Over 70 copies of the magazine have been distributed to “key workers, isolated individuals and inspiring organisations, free of charge, to spread a little bit of hope in the community.”

I’m super pleased to be one of the local writers featured in this magazine, and to be part of such a worthwhile cause. I hope my short story, A Dog called Rupert’ will bring a smile to people’s faces. The underlying message of this story is the sense of community Covid-19 has uncovered in neighbourhoods, who before the pandemic rarely spoke to one-another. I hope this sense of hope and silver lining shines through.
