Short stories writer

Best short stories writers can work-out a lot of things for themselves: regarding life and love, war and peace, success or failure. Yet at the same time, writing is not really facing issues head-on, realistically — because there’s imagination and fancy, style and humour — where the author can escape a lot and even change people, events through the work.  So that authors are often said to be hiding really and not really helping an audience cope with the anomalies of life, the problems we all face every day.  We can say instead, they are entertaining us, encouraging us to escape and refresh ourselves.  But it seems all these concerns (both sides of the story) are firmly imbedded in serious writing; which is why we keep coming back to books, poems, novels, short stories online and more.  They going to be around a long, long, time yet…

Short Stories Online

Stories give you a glimpse into a writer’s imagination: with a particular event, realistic, or somewhere occurring in the depth of his/her own thoughts.  And a short stories writer also wants his/her work to reach the maximum possible audience, to get a broader feedback and understand the very nature of his/her audience.  In doing so, providing short stories online, is the very best method to reach out to the unreachable. Even the best short stories writers are adopting the online method for their audience.

I was only thirteen when first arriving in London (never thought to be a short stories writer/poet), on a coal carrier from the northeast region.  We were waiting in front of Tower Bridge for a low tide; to proceed up the Thames River towards Battersea power station.  Suddenly, I was in the center of a world famous port; a mere child on summer passage as ‘cabin boy’ to the small crew — carrying mugs of  tea up to the bridge and down to the engine room.  In return I stood at the chart table, with the captain; to be instructed on sights either side of the river, the history and landmarks: like ‘Traitor’s gate’ near the White Tower and ‘Big ben’ clock tower.  Altogether it was more than I bargained for, but remains with me as an adult, as special treasure from younger days…

Here with the help of my website I’m trying to present some of my work/thoughts in the form of —

  • Short stories online/offline (Being a short stories writer I have put all my years of experience to provide you the best)
  • Poems/Poetics
  • Short fiction stories
  • Some Essays ( About best short stories writers / famous English poets)

This journey started years back from London, England.  Then as an adult I managed to explore many parts of the world from Seoul to California, from Yukon to Vancouver and many other places. Finally all these travel experiences, I include in my books.  Hoping you will enjoy reading them ….

“Prose works words, poetry gathers them anew”

Coming back from Churchill, at Winnipeg airport; after three days/nights sleeping rough on the Polar Bear Express train; which goes straight north through hundreds of lakes, boreal forest and empty horizons.  Where I did a bit of writing/reading, exploring and exchanging with some of the locals about bears, whales and such like — to help my own writing be informed…

There is a big difference between prose and poetry — brevity is one, enhanced use of language another, along with tropes and such like…



Reader’s who appreciated and provided their valuable comments.

Like all the best writers of fiction, Stuart bases his stories on his own experiences gathered in a varied lifetime; spent partly in England, partly in North America, in rural areas and cosmopolitan sites. Well-read in English literature, he was influenced by the likes of Hemingway & Segfreid Sassoon. He has been publishing his prose and poetical works for over fifty years now…

Stuart is a published, experienced writer and a former teacher of English literature.  His stories and poems are
notable for their breadth of understanding with his northern roots and of the indigenous peoples of Canada, his adopted country — 
further analysis cannot easily be done in a few sentences…

Stuart Newton was born to write and to allow his experiences and his observations along the way to turn into poetry, fiction, essay, or memoir for the enjoyment and edification of others.  With a heart for the outsider, a deep moral conviction, and in a quirky style all his own, he allows his readers to look again at their own familiar world from a slightly unfamiliar angle and to appreciate it more.

Meeting Stuart in England back in the early sixties at what was then the Royal Agricultural College Cirencester his interest both in the land and in writing serves him well as an author. His short stories that take place in the north of the country together with descriptions of people real or perhaps imagined are, by and large very entertaining . His interest in such well-known characters as, for example, John Keats are illuminating.

Writers want to change the world; when it’s often difficult to change their own life, friends and family — it’s a basic conundrum for most of them, myself included. But they keep going, often from early age, in unlikely circumstances — to challenge what they see, what they hear; to question things meant to be accepted, believed and followed… Certainly short stories writers I know (myself included), usually do not want to follow-on with easy answers, the status quo, common beliefs — they cannot rely on what has become readily accepted, they are loathe to be distracted from their own insights, experiences and ideas…

"A place with books, journals and reading materials; fiction and verse -- has the very best furniture to make a comfortable home"

I first began prose writing at about eleven years old, along with a school pal: suggested by our teacher. We were basically imitating ‘Enid Blyton’s’ stories, for our own devices and really got down to it one year, completing dozens of pages. Then we all read the first ‘Agatha Christie’ stories and tried to create our own murder/mystery and become best short stories writers…

In Canada, I began poetry writing, after reading how it’s good training for prose writing — with a new typewriter (Although today I have computers and provide my readers short stories online) delivered from a catalogue. I was way up in northern parts (Peace River), with some free time after work duties at a construction site; only intending to stay with poems a short time. But they quickly took all my interest and it was exciting to see finished work nicely set-out on a page of type-written words…

My very first adult fiction was about California in the late 1960/70’s (written in London) and turned out well — thinking poetry had indeed been good training for prose writing.  I completed twelve stories and provided those short stories online to read; focusing on Rudi Borah, a young man adrift on the sunny Westcoast.  At the same time, I needed to write about teaching in London (1980-2000). This became another collection of short fiction, following Scott Robinson round his schools and London scenes with his time-off.  I wrote these two books side-by-side and they turned out well; though very different locations, characters and themes…
