Magical Realism! I am just doing some research on this genre and found this great website/Zine which explores poetry, fiction, and non-fiction related to Magical Realism.
It is so interesting as a reader to be taken along a journey which explores fantastical elements that are situated in the “real” world. I am reading a novel by a great and powerful mastermind of words, Ben Okri, called “The Famished Road”. It is a must read! I am so inspired that my next short story will be focused on further exploring this genre in my own writing : )
