Short Stories

What Grows

What Grows, a short story of mine, is included in Issue 38.1 of Room magazine. The issue will be launched this Sunday at the IndustREAL Arts Room, where I’ll be doing a reading alongside local contributors Kamila Rina, Mahak Jain and Jane Iordakieva.

  1. Just had the delight of reading What Grows. Wow! I lived in Africa when I was a child
    ( Dakar) and I smelled the ground- although you didn’t waste time with painting it in words. Wow- the imagery stays like you’ve planted trees inside your reader. What a masterful teller of a tale you are Ms Fisseha! Please tell us that story was fiction.


    • Hi lisarem, thank you very much for your comments. I’m so glad it reminded you of home and childhood. Don’t worry the story is fiction, though I was as much of a garden-adventurer as the next African kid!
