Peeking Cat Perspectives – March 2017

Hi all! Here is the first Peeking Cat Perspectives. I’m really excited for this and hope lots of people will join. Here’s how it works:

2. Submit your writing by commenting on this blog post. All posts are moderated just so that we don’t get any spam, so they might not appear straight away.

There is more information about Peeking Cat Perspectives here. I’m interested to see how differently art influences each of us!
