About Writer’s Egg Magazine Issue #2 by multiple contributors::
Genre: Short Story; Flash Fiction; Poetry; Art
Writer’s Egg Magazine is a UK based magazine that features various creative works from all over the world. Currently it is a monthly digital magazine with future plans to publish in a physical format. There is no set genre or theme; submissions can include short stories, flash fiction, poetry, art, book reviews, author interviews, and more. They include ‘Meet the Creators’ section in their issues to tell readers a little bit more about the minds behind the contributions. They also share weekly/monthly writing prompts and contests on their social media pages (linked below).
I think Writer’s Egg has a great thing going here. I hope they continue to progress and succeed in this venture. I was ecstatic to have two of my stories included in this issue! Since it is a collection of numerous works by numerous creators, I’m going to touch a little on everything in this review, but overall know that I enjoyed each and every piece in this collection.
Obviously I won’t be reviewing my own contributions though I will tell you what they are about. Some sections I won’t be able to say much due to the nature of the work. I will, however, list the contributors so you may check them out.
- Mr. Telapoka goes to America by Tulip Chowdhury
- A cockroach finds himself suddenly uprooted from his home and halfway across the world. How will he ever survive in this harsh environment? An interesting perspective on what makes life worth living. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
- Bodrick the Bard & the Tale of the Last Tea by Alex Broad
- When a satyr gets the last cup of tea in existence, his day quickly devolves into a mad rush to protect his drink from the numerous fantasy beings around him. A fun, comedic adventure from start to finish. Although I might have to fight the author over his feelings toward coffee (just joking, Mr. Broad).
- It Was A Mistake by Sahreth ‘Baphy’ Bowden
- This is one of my stories. A girl claiming to be haunted by a demon is diagnosed with schizophrenia, but it’s not easy to know who to trust.
- Never Again by Jaya Martin
- Just saying ‘no’ isn’t always easy or even an option at all. This morbid account of sexual abuse in the workplace details a woman’s struggle to keep her job without losing the rights to her own body. A story that everyone needs to understand is an atrocious reality for many women.
- The Cabinet of Curiosities by Tabitha Potts
- A maid to a wealthy professor becomes intrigued with his impressive collection of oddities. One particular, more secretive cabinet shifts both her perspective and her very life. Very aptly named as the story is quite curious and thought-provoking.
- Sore Loser by Sahreth ‘Baphy’ Bowden
- Another of my stories. If anxiety was personified as a supernatural force, how would that creature behave and how would you overcome it? Could you?
This section includes work by Tony Sandy, Peter Donnelly, Phoebe Bowers, P J Reed, Carla M Cherry, Anya Hickman, Tali Cohen Shabtai, Patricia Walsh, Lali A. Love, Christopher T. Dabrowski, and Allan Lake.
Artists who contributed are Anita Arif and Adaja Cooper.
