If there’s one thing we’ve got plenty of, it’s Stories (Bibhu Padhi),
sometimes artful, 
like The Yellow Cow by Jennie Osborne,
sometimes dark and mysterious, with David Banks 
Exorcising Gehenna,
or Geraldine Clarkson’s After-woodsand often both,
when you join
Robin Thomas and Edward In The Garden.
You’re off on A Strange Journey, as Kathy Miles 
will tell you.
Spend a
Moment with Roxy Dunn, enjoy Michael Henry’s Nocturne in Biarritz,
play Rock, Paper, Scissors with Richard Williams, or discover Kimmeridge, courtesy of Khadija Rouf.
Yes, follow
E. Kristin Anderson’s instructions: “A Nearby Fence, Pull” –
then all will be revealed…

Everyman Liverpool
