A Little Lit-Monster Heard It On The Grapevine…

Long time no see! I’m back to do a big promo-thingo for my lit-mag, The Drowning Gull. We’ve been busy over the past few months: developing blog posts, reading submissions and planning exciting things. I’ve come back with something a little different, this time.
