Poetry and Prose Round-Up: Ahh, September, my Autumnal Friend.

With the summer over and done in a blaze of glory, we are back to the nights drawing in and that cosy Autumnal feeling. I think I said it last year but September feels like more of a new beginning to me than January. Something to do with it being the start of a new […]
