Velvet antlers; hidden talents

Santa’s sleigh: a picture drawn by a child supported by the Teenage Cancer Trust

You might remember that a few weeks ago I mentioned a new project, 26 Stories of Christmas. Well, the site went live yesterday for the first day of advent. Day one features my 62 word poem about the flying reindeer of Finland.

The 62 word poem, or ‘sestude’, is inspired by the fabulous drawing of Santa and his reindeer shown here.

Do visit the online advent calendar every day up until 26 December to see drawings by children helped by Teenage Cancer Trust and It’s Good to Give, alongside poems written by writers from 26. And if you feel moved to donate to either of these charities that helps children and teenagers with cancer, we’d be incredibly grateful.
