Today sees the release of Walled Women‘s first issue. When I first wrote “Such a Shame”, I had no idea what to do with it. The opening sentence had haunted me for a while and when I finished writing I was fully prepared for it to be something that just sat in my writing folder.
Then the wonderful Taylor Rae—whose poem “A Little Death” also appears in the issue—shared the submission call for Walled Women and it seemed a little bit like fate for my dark, little flash fic.
