Primarily looking any opportunities to write -- chiefly corresponding with people willing to share creative works, like fiction and poetry.

• Letters. Prefer hand-written, but typed is fine - as long as they are filled with personality.

• Illustrations. Again, anything 'artsy', new or novel are welcome.

• Books. Would love to contribute to book swaps.

Please send all of the above (excepting postcards) in stamped envelopes.

Especially interested in receiving correspondence in French. Currently learning to read and write the language. If you're a native speaker, please send me well-written pieces.

Preferably written postcards sent without envelopes. Please send any style or design.

Comment: Vivid writing, action vivid -- time line confusing, (Why do so many young writers, are you are, enjoy writing about ugly people and ugly actions--it can't be the only thing you can do well. (I hope)
Response: Thank you, June. I'll add this: I deliberately experimented with time sequence in this story. Could probably do with a re-write.
