Poem Up at Gingerbread House Literary Magazine

Founder and co-editor Christine Butterworth-McDermott really knows her way around a fairy tale. She understands their flexibility, responsibilities, and opportunities. So it was thrilling that she took one of my Red Riding Hood poems for the new issue of Gingerbread House Literary Magazine. 

You can read it here and see the beautiful artwork that was paired with the poem: Interrogation

  1. Did you mean this to be so shocking a retelling of the old tale Luanne? Or is it just me? It will take a few readings for me to settle into those images……… Man, you are a talent 🙂

  2. Lots of food for thought here. Congrats on the publication, Luanne.

  3. Wow and whoa! I read that a few times. Good job and congrats. I love that artist, too.

  4. Wonderful, Luanne. I love this one!

  5. Wow! Great job, Luanne. Congratulations on the publication. Doing a happy dance in Charlotte! ❤

  6. Your imagination is a marvel for me, Luanne.
    This poem both asks and answers questions often buried deep in our unconscious.
    Art work also great!
    Bravo!!

    • Ah, that sentence: “This poem both asks and answers questions often buried deep in our unconscious.” Yay!!! Yes to the art–that bird and all it represents!

  7. Congratulations, Luanne. I remember we’ve discussed Little Red before.
    This is definitely a poem to read over–well done–and that illustration is perfect.

  8. Lots of questions there to ponder. Congratulations on the publication!

  9. Congratulations on the publication. It’s exciting that it’s one of you favorite subjects. I looked at your Pinterest page. Wow! Who knew there were so many images of Red? I’ll be more aware from now on.
