Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Judy Darley. Here is our twist on an interview.


  • A quote that inspires you:

“Fiction is the truth inside the lie.” ― Stephen King

  • Your writing process described as a song:
  • You’re a writer so tell us with your words why you write. But please don’t bore us:

The experience of writing is to reach the brightest and darkest parts of yourself. If it frightens you, chances are you’re doing it right. It’s also a bridge, both into the depths of yourself, and out of yourself into the rest of the world. I write to see the world more clearly, and to make sense of the parts of it that bewilder me. There’s the aim, too, to connect with other people in a way that will help them to see things with fresh eyes.

  • What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?

I rather like my flash fiction “The Moth Room,” published in Gone Lawn issue 21.
It’s inspired by a recent visit to an artist’s studio, and is my twist on the Cinderella fairytale.
