Where and how did you hear of this magical litzine kingdom?

I first got my taste when Mike was trying to convince my friends to get me to come to Creative Writing at college (giving up my Wednesday afternoon frees was hard for me at that time). He handed me one and pointed and said "We're looking for people just like you!"

I believe it was probably one of the first times I'd actually listened to a stranger.  Cheesy

I picked one up from a bar in the fair(ly crummy) city of Sheffield (in England, for our transatlantic cousins).

Started reading while waiting for a girl to turn up. The fire and brimstone style instantly connected with me, and I didn't notice that she was half an hour late until I looked at my watch.

She didn't turn up, but I went home and sat up writing.

Her loss, my gain.

That's great! We wouldn't be talking right now if she'd turned up! Just think what the world would be like! Wink

I got it from a toilet seat. Literally- the Brighton Bar poetry show.

Introduced when Ploe got in with a piece about how I was turning in to him and he didn't like it =p

He sent one to me which I keep in my safe drawer. I didn't like the rest though and haven't read any since, but I enjoy posting here.

I found it at the Brighton Bar last spring. It was just lying there in the window begging to be picked up.  Grin

 Cheesy I was walking down Peaks College stairs when this man with a bright jumper appeared... and said politely (something like).. ''Heyy Josh, you should come to creative writing, it will give you a lot more confidence and you can say what you want and people will listen and not take the piss'' ... And thats what actually kept me at that college, that one great chat we had  Smiley
