Life, Monthly Recap, Writing

Writerly Roundup of February & March

Hi everyone, and welcome to another bi-monthly newsletter. Spring has sprung, at least around here, and so far, this year has been pretty fantastic. I’ve kept very busy with reading and reviewing these past two months, and there are lots of roundups and reviews to check out in addition to some new and reprinted stories.

You can also catch this roundup as my Mostly Harmless Newsletter.
