If you've visited our writing page recently you'll have seen that we've just published a piece called Pigeon Blood, by Kerry Barner. We think it's an incredibly poignant tale. You can read it here. This is the second piece of Kerry's that we've published, the first being Objekt BD in 2015, a story that grabbed the attention of all the editors at Platform.
And it's Objekt BD that is the subject of this post.
If you're a short story writer you are most likely aware of the superb site run by Christopher Fielden found at www.christopherfielden.com. Kerry approached us to say that Christopher wanted to feature her story Objekt BD on his website. Naturally, we were delighted to oblige.
In the article, Kerry describes how she came to write Objekt BD. It makes an interesting read for anyone trying to develop their writing. We're also grateful to Kerry for her kind words about Platform. You can read the article on www.christopherfielden.com by clicking here.

Quite remarkable really. In just over a month Platform will be a year old. Where did the time go?
A lot has happened in a year. We've established quite a readership & a decent following. We've had the privilege of reading some amazing short fiction. But we're not done yet.
The way we see it is this. This is just the beginning. And if we're anything to do with it Platform will continue to go from strength to strength.
We're accepting submissions all year round. We've overhauled our web interface to make it easier to navigate. We've added an Editors' choice feature where one story from the collection will be pride of place as an open read for any visitors to the website. And we'll be selecting what we think are our best pieces for an anthology that we're aiming to publish this year.
So keep writing. Keep the submissions coming. Tell your friends & acquaintances about us. Spread the word....
