New Poems: 'Yolk/White' and 'In Case'

While I've been away on my ITEF Fellowship in Istanbul there's been a little flurry of my writing appearing in the world. 

This means that you can now read two of my new poems for free online.

'The estate agent posts written requests 
to air the space between us
before public viewings.'

Ink Sweat & Tears

Susie Wild tickles our fancy today on

In case
of fire
exit building
before tweeting
about it...

You can read my new story 'Looks Like Rain' in the Spring issue of The Lonely Crowd (Issue 4) which is out now. Buy it from the website or pop along to the launch at Little Man in Cardiff on the 20th of May where I'll be reading with a number of the other excellent contributors. If you'd like a sneak preview, you can read a little bit about my writing process and the story in my short essay on The Lonely Crowd website.
I'm also pleased to have been offered a short UK residency this summer to concentrate on my writing about more rural locations and place in my fiction and poetry. More on that, and on my time in Istanbul soon.
Stay well lovelies,

The Lonely Crowd: Susie Wild On Writing ‘Looks Like Rain’

'It began with the opening image. I usually start stories or poems with an image, a line or a character. I’m a visual learner, an introvert observer of others. Knowing I’d agreed to write this piece I’ve been racking my brain and notebooks for the seed that planted the first page.'
Read the article in full on The Lonely Crowd website. My story 'Looks Like Rain' is in the new Spring 2016 Issue, out now. I'll be reading it at the Little Man launch in Cardiff on 20th May.
