“…It is necessary to have five hundred Pounds a year and a room with a lock on the door if you are to write fiction or poetry.”
– Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
In 1987 my short story The Silver Frame was published in Room of One’s Own, a journal dedicated to promote the works of emerging writers.
“In 2007, the collective relaunched the magazine as Room, reflecting a more outward-facing, conversational editorial mandate.
Currently,Room publishes short fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, art, feature interviews, and regular features that promote dialogue between readers, writers and the collective, including “Roommate” (a profile of a Room reader), “Room Recommends” (short recommendations of books, films and music), and “The Back Room” (back page opinion pieces on feminist topics of interest).”
