Hayden Wand Hayden Wand's blog:

Rooglewood’s fairy tale contests are very dear to my heart. This is not only because “The Wulver’s Rose” was included in Five Enchanted Roses (although that’s a large part!) but also because I love the chance it gives to writers, especially self-published ones, to spread their wings. And of cours...

Poem for a Wednesday in New York

Bitter cold here in New York today,
As the subway bomber lies in the hospital,
And the Santa Barbara hills burn.
My credit card was hacked yesterday.
Raqqa lies in ruins.

What shall I do?
I shall go to choir tonight
And sing Mozart.
Come with me!
