What is Small Stories?

Small Stories is a letter from me to you about searching for magic & meaning. It’s the secrets of my writing life, sent from my tiny loft room study straight to your inbox, and is a Substack Featured Publication of 2023.

I'm Laura, author of the book Little Stories of Your Life, and creator of Instagram account @circleofpines. I’m currently writing my second book, whilst chasing foggy mornings and seeking dancing light.

You can subscribe to Small Stories monthly letters for free, but for £3.50 a month (or £30 a year) you can become part of my community and receive a weekly post from me every Friday. In addition to my letters, these include:

— Love List (the books and online pieces I’m reading each month)

— Postcards (shorter, subscriber-only stories)

— Voice Notes (I’ll take you with me on my walks and writing adventures)

— ‘The Feeling of Writing a Book’ (an occasional series, just for you, with insights into my book writing process)

Paid subscribers have ongoing access to my Seasonal Magic creative mini courses (coming next: Summer Magic).

They will also be the first to hear any news, gain access to the full archive, and support my work more meaningfully.


if you want to, you can write back by leaving a comment. I’d like that very much. And if you think there is someone you know who would also enjoy Small Stories, you can share it. I’d be terribly grateful if you did.
