I’m glad you acknowledged the lack of support that Medium gives to writers of fiction and poetry, particularly with regard to the lack of promotion given to the best of this writing. I know I’m biased, but I actually think that some of the best and most original writing on this platform comes from the fiction writers, poets and creative personal essayists. We support each other, and some dedicated writers have created publications to home this work, which have significant readership. But the casual reader – and even some longer term readers/writers on this platform – would be forgiven for not realising these works can be found here, when buried under all the other content stuff pushed by Medium. Some interesting thoughts, but so far it seems the truly creative writers, just like those sisters in the eighties, will need to keep doing it for themselves.

sneaking poetry into the corners of the day, and telling stories to myself in grasp of sanity.
