Let's Say I Am by Richard J. Jones

I really do consider it a privilege to have a story published in The Caterpillar. There’s something a bit irresistible about The Moth and The Caterpillar, I think. It’s as if, on discovering them, you suddenly realise that they had been missing from the world – and they shouldn’t have been!’

The winning stories are published annually in the winter issue of The Caterpillar. You can order back issues here
