Over that time, I’ve assisted with guests, hosted and participated in events, led and assisted many Litfest Tours, and generally seen myself as Saffia Widdershins’ Girl Friday.

The Land Of Wisps Forgot
A dream, a reverie If you would venture where the Spirits CrossBe sure to have your wings on: you will needTo cross a gorge wide as a giant’s stepAnd with one broken bridge, a gust of windCould make you miss your stride. Only the rocksWould welcome you. Like I said: wear your wings. Continue reading
Sullen, and Satisfied, in Sialdor
From Friðrós: It didn’t work. At least, not the other night. I guess purple is not radical enough to raise Her Majesty’s anger. But I am no huldefólk who gives up. No; I will try again and again. This time, Moth favoured me with a lovely Viridian paint, and I topped it off with some… Continue reading
A Quiet Shift in Fungalmire?
From The Amazing Catwoman: So, yeah. I took last year off from working security at the Great Faire, and it was worth it. I enjoyed doing not-much, but more importantly, the offer to work this year’s Faire came with considerably more remuneration than previous Faires! I guessed they missed me, eh? Either that or someone… Continue reading
The New House, And Other Little Details
From Gwyneth: My darlings, one of the Awenian details I’ve been fussing over for months, possibly longer, is what I and Nathaniel will use for our official residence. The spot was already chosen: a small island with a rocky cliff edge, atop which we could view the rest of Awenia at our leisure. But it… Continue reading
A Quick Reminder:
The Author won the COVID lottery (and by won, she means lost) this week, so she doesn’t have much energy for stories right now. But you should remember that Midsummer Enchantment closes TODAY! If you haven’t been yet, or if there’s something you weren’t sure you wanted to buy but now can’t get out of… Continue reading
The Short Flight of Seda Sylvia
A Tangential Tale from the Fairelands I thought I was free. But isn’t that always the way? Truth is, I’d been searching for days to find a forest worth hiding in; in these modern and varied Fairelands, that’s sometimes not the easiest brief. So many towns with only snatches of forest in them. When I… Continue reading
The Orbs Of Necturn Moon
From The Amazing Catwoman: I noticed recently that it was getting harder and harder to send messages from Faerie. I talked to Wulfrich about it, and he thinks this is because Gwyneth is becoming more and more a creature of Faerie and less and less a creature of the world from which she came. Her… Continue reading
The Dark in Mythspire Ridge
If Mythspire Ridge seems dazzling from afarThen you have not looked close enough. Go back,And take the stairways down to where the seaMeets soil: there, you will hear a different tale. The belly of the ridge, beneath the arch,Beneath the statue bases, where the treesGrow shorter but the crystals shine as bright,Here find the roots… Continue reading
From the Candles to the Stars
From Davi: I … woke up like this. I’ve learned not to ask how these things happen. I’ve learned not to speculate about the reasons behind them, the physics, the wherefores and whatevers. But often, no matter what predicament I find myself in, there is a definite why. In this case, and at this time,… Continue reading
