Claudia McGill Writes Poetry, Did You Know That?

You may know that I am an artist as well as a writer of poetry, and that I have an art blog, Claudia McGill and Her Art World , in addition to this one. Recently I’ve completed a set of illustrations for a writing project, 28 days of flash fiction at Fictive Dream, an online magazine devoted to the short story.

The event is called Flash Fiction Februaryand is going on right now, with a new flash fiction story each day.

If you want to know more about the artwork side of the project, my art blog is currently featuring the artworks I did plus some posts…

We Are Not Twins

…but we were born at the same time.

OK, it’s a little bit of too much to call a clay statue “born” but they’ve been together since they were formed from the same clay slab, and they did come through two firings together. Enough said.

Two clay figurines, low-fire white clay, Velvet underglazes, fired at cone 06, about 15″ tall – October, 2018.

Or maybe I’ve already shown them. Well, in that case you get to see them twice.
