Our Past

Bring them back out,

all those memories

gathered in darkened gaps.

Those ones we brush past

when hunting for knowledge

or plucking out art,

only to find again

in another’s idle word.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.


      • You’re welcome — it really touched me — very evocative! Will read more in days to come — you know how it is, I sometimes read a novel in two days nonstop until my eyes bleed and then, I can go for way to long without even reading a short story :). Your style suits me and so thank you for the opportunity to get some READING in :)! Best, R

        • I know exactly what you mean, I do something quite similar and also find myself writing far too much flash fiction and poetry instead of my novels. It’s fantastic that you’re coming back though. Thank you very much and I hope you will enjoy what you read. There is quite a bit to chose from.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
