Tulips for the Homeless

Tulips for the Homeless was written as a YA flash which Reflex Fiction published as having just missed out on longlisting.

 This piece came from seeing a bunch of tulips by a sleeping bag outside Westminster Station. I set it in Cork in Ireland where Patrick's bridge had just got a makeover and took some of the themes which come with regeneration and homelessness and community.


 The tulips I saw as a symbol of hope, like spring or the sunrise of a new day.
