"There is a writer in all of us. We all have an inside voice, whether it roars like a chorus of lions or gently whispers - it's there.
This is mine."
"A powerful piece that explores grief and trauma with clarity and sensitivity. Some beautiful lines here made more beautiful set amidst such tragedy. The narrator’s imagining her father unzipping from within a friend’s father to reveal where he has been hiding is heartbreaking. A compelling examination of loss."
- Dan Powell & Rachel Bower (judges from Hive South Yorkshire 2023 writers competition)
