Whispers and Echoes Poetry and Flash Fiction Index | August 2020

 

Another bumper crop of poetry, with a little flash fiction thrown in, was posted on the site in August.  Extra posting days were made available to accommodate all the beautiful submissions we received.  Some were general, un-themed submissions, some were responses for “Summer 2020”, but all were wonderfully written and evocative.

Enjoy!

Enjoy!

Whispers and Echoes Poetry and Flash Fiction Index | May 2020

 

May saw us put the finishing touches to our site-wide update, and so the first week of the month was spent once more celebrating our archives while for the remainder of the month we returned to our usual posting schedule.  This means the number of poems and pieces of flash fiction we have listed below in the index for May 2020 is, like April’s Index, higher than usual.  Enjoy!
