Caught by the River has long been one of my favourite websites. The self-described ‘arts/culture/nature clash’ publishes beautiful and thought-provoking essays, music and photography.
It’s one of the sites that I recommended in my Women’s Nature Writing post a couple of years ago, and I’ve been thrilled by the number of people who have let me know that they’ve become regular readers since that recommendation.
Anyway, I’m really excited to share the news that I’ve now had my first piece published with Caught by the River. It’s an essay about the challenge – you might even say the impossibility – of calling two places home.
It’s the first piece of creative non-fiction I’ve published in a good while, and I was quite nervous about sharing something so personal. But I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed (in a good way!) by the reception it’s had on social media.
I hope that if you take the time to pop over and read the piece, which is called Going Home, that you enjoy it too.
