Poetry Advent Calendar 8: Post-it Poets
It's slightly late, but hiding behind the eighth door of our Advent Calendar is our latest post-it poet, the inimitable Kristina Wojtaszek. Hailing from Wyoming, USA, Kristina is an avid collector of odd trinkets and hopeful ever-afters. She pens poems, fairy tale retellings, ghost stories and other shorts. Follow her trail of crumbs on her website, Twice Upon A Time.
