Hello, fellow wanderers of the Electric Holy Road!
It’s been a minute.
I’m popping in to let you know that I’ve just published an e-zine that I’ve been working on for the past couple of months – Reading Writings.
Reading Writings is a collection of short stories, poems and personal reflections about Reading, England.
It explores ideas of home and home-sickness from the perspective of an outsider attempting to build a home. It’s a warts-and-all account of the first few years learning to live in and love Reading – a growing, unique and little-discussed town between London and the rest of the country.
This project has been very important to me, written as it was in an awful Covid-19 lockdown, far, far, far from home. It’s been a chance to explore my new neighbourhood in a new light, rethink how I perceive Reading, and start building a new home in an unfamiliar land.
I hope you enjoy reading through Reading Writings and that, maybe, it makes up for all these months without a new Electric Holy Road post…
Reading Writings was created as part of the Manual Writing remote residency, 2020, organised by Mods Collective, Leipzig.
