Welcome to the home of the

Word Artisan









This page showcases some of the work of Jon Garland, a writer living in Canberra, Australia. All work on this site is copyright©Jonathan Garland unless specifically stated otherwise.

I wanted a place equivalent to an artist's gallery, where I could put some of what I've done on display. After all, words are dead on the page unless someone is reading them. And where can you get a better forum for peer review than the World Wide Web?

Feel free to poke around, ask questions, make comments.
