Andrew Little's poem is both a somber reflection and a triumphant anthem of pride and heritage. Its rhythmic cadence and lyrical depth carefully acknowledge a painful past while honoring the legacy and influence of the Black community. We find it incredibly beautiful.

    I was lucky enough to get to know Rebecca Morton when she kindly took an interest in one of my posts, and many of you will have read her runner-up entry for Pitch Your Pilot and her recent Top Story in the Fairytale Challenge. Here I'd like to call your attention to another of Rebecca's, which you can read at the link below. Into this nostalgic memoir are woven some of the most interesting and comprehensive reflections on faith I've ever read here on Vocal - I don't want to spoil it for you, but just take a look at how within the microcosm of this deceptively simple narrative we see doubt and hypocrisy played out, before closing on a joyous affirmation of what belief is and what rewards it should bring. Although Rebecca's theme is religious, your own views (whatever they are) won't affect your enjoyment of this story, or your appreciation of its author's accomplishment. Rebecca ought to be required reading in this day and age, because her thoughtful and well-considered prose is exactly the kind of writing which AI will never be able to replicate! https://vocal.media/confessions/two-nine-year-old-atheists-walk-into-a-church

    This deserves more attention ✨ https://vocal.media/fiction/weegie-wolf It will require a bit more time as it’s written in Scot’s / Glaswegian dialect .. but well worth it… it’s clever… it’s powerful… take a peek!

  • Raymond G. Taylor10 months ago

    Lamar is an all round good guy supporting other creators and has produced some terrific work. This Aliens story really brightened up my day. Also inspired me to try my own hand at the challenge. Thanks Lamar. Check this out folks: https://vocal.media/authors/lamar-wiggins

    Hey peoples, Paul the word abuser, maligner and whatever. I write poetry, fiction, horror, satire, non-fictionand whatnot. This piece published earlier today by Kayleigh Fraser is some powerful writing that will, I am sure, resonate with many. It's incredibly brave, raw, but with a poetic beauty to it all! https://vocal.media/poets/life-lessons-b31l8057x

  • Kayleigh Fraser ✨10 months ago

    Judey wrote this emotional and vulnerable personal story… it’s extremely moving https://vocal.media/psyche/death-of-a-salesman-u41204gb
