A self-promotional message…

Agnes and True is proud to present our fourth story. Read “The Red Kite” by Paula Dunning:



I went back to the “Message from Paula” (at the top of this page) posted more than a year ago to find this reminder of one purpose for this blog: “an opportunity for me to introduce myself as an emerging—as well as aging—author.” So, while I haven’t posted for nearly two months I feel justified in using the space for some shameless self-promotion.

A new online journal, Agnes and True (yes, it’s a funny name…you can read about it on their site) is interested in “older, emerging, Canadian, women” authors. Hmmm. Check, check, check, check. So I sent them a short story I wrote last summer when you’ll remember—if you were following this at the time—I was in the throes of a decision about where and how to live for the next decade, or for as long as I stay fit and healthy.

The folks at Agnes and True liked the story, and they’ve published it on their site today.


Unlike Rachel in the story, I am still on the “farm”, still fit and healthy, enjoying this all-too-short summer. And resolving to return to blogging.

    I know I read this–but somehow seeing it typeset and published makes it even better. And I’d forgotten how moving the ending is. Congratulations.

    Very touching,Paula. Your work always brings me back to other houses and our Tallow Hill farm….
