Magical realism, Filton style

If you’re going to advise poets on their work, it’s as well to keep your own hand in from time to time.

Congratulations, then, to Colin for winning the individual prize in the City of Bristol College Creative Writing Competition, with a poetic-prose piece called MIAOWWW!

Colin says: ‘Black cats evoke magic, mystery, music, night-time and a cool lyric! I played around with these elements and Miaowww! gradually appeared… magical realism, Filton style.’
