Microcosms 29

This week we have regular Microcosms participant, Meg Kovalik, hosting the competition. I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I check in on current affairs at the moment I feel like I’m caught up in some elaborate publicity stunt for the latest Dystopian YA franchise. Between rampant xenophobia, deadly riots, government doublethink, and summary…

RESULTS – Microcosms 27

Apologies all for the lateness of the post. Many thanks to our judge for Microcosms 27 Bill Engleson, here are his final judgements: Here in lotus land (I know, I know, there are so many lotus lands, but I am referencing MINE; The West Coast of British Columbia,) it’s been wet for days. Not flood wet,…

Said a final farewell to my Mum on Friday … and now today the first Father’s Day without my Dad … Miss laughing with my sister Celia but now I have…

RESULTS – Microcosms 25

Many thanks to our judge A.J. Walker for judging this week’s competition, here’s what he had to say: Well, it’s been an exhausting and quite depressing time in England for the last few days. For some of us. Exciting and unbelievably good for others. So it was nice to have some light relief in reading…

Microcosms 25

Welcome back, all. In honour of our resident gourmet Sal Page who so kindly came up with last week’s competition, this week’s post centres on the role food plays in our lives – it feeds the body, provides a focus for families, welcomes the newcomer, instils guilt for eating the wrong thing or too much,…

RESULTS – Microcosms 23

This week’s stories made judging an extremely close call, there was very little to choose between any of them and perhaps on another day, the results would have been in a completely different order. Although small, this week’s entries formed a great collection and for some reason the numbers brought to mind the quote from…
