About Us

Meet the Owner, Lucy:

I am Lucy, the owner of Lucy’s Works: A Little Writing Workshop of Horrors.

I am a published poet and I have been writing consistently since 2015, often indulging into horror, sci-fi, and psychological thriller type genres. I prefer to read sci-fi and horror; my writing relies on the branches of the horror genre combining different sub-genres. For my poetry or prose, I do at times use horror-like themes within my imagery, but often I write about the dissociation of the world. I, at times, write under the pseudonym Ellie Onka and occasionally post on All Poetry.

The Little Writing Workshop of Horrors side of the blog (much like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) shows a different facet of the website, presenting creative offerings through submissions, editorial pieces, contributions, and collaborative events. It also ranked #66 out of 100 on the top 100 Writing Blogs and Websites in Feedspot, as well #29 out 100 for Top 100 Horror Blogs And Websites For Horror Fans.

My content mainly focuses on poetry, often grim and verbose, but you can find me in short story projects as well, such as in collaborative events or offerings.

I love reading and writing (of course), but I also play the guitar; I’ve been playing for four years. I’ve dabbled into a small bit of piano, and very little music theory in the past. Music for me now consists of my guitar or an electronic synthesizer, at times publishing projects on my BandLab.

I have publications appear in Spillwords Press, Oxford is My Home Webzine, Visual Verse Anthology, Ephemeral Elegies, VariantLit Magazine, Free Verse Revolution, the Scarlet Leaf Review, and forthcoming in an anthology entitled Plague Invasion.

Meet the Editor, Mark:

Mark Borne is an author who has no clue what he’s doing. He just knows he happens to not write about anything he’s familiar with, and writes about everything he does not know.

Lucy’s comment: Mark Borne is the author and owner of The Nexus of Writers and its relaunched version on WordPress. He often writes under the pseudonyms, The Mirror Ant, Mark Swift, and Nexus Fox. He is most recognized for his onion poem along with other works which can delve into the food genre in poetry.

At the Little Writing Workshop of Horrors, Mark Borne is an editor, author, and contributor.

    Huh…when did you change your blog’s appearance? Lol I usually use the WordPress Reader, so this is about the first time I have come to your actual blog in the last month, despite how I’ve still read new posts ๐Ÿ˜›

    Also, I read your submission for the Collaborative Challenge; it’s very creative, very well done, and very exciting to read ๐Ÿ˜€ Assuming it’s within the word range (which I bet it is) I wouldn’t bet against it, although we’ll see what everyone else writes lol

      Lol. Surprise! I changed it a couple of days ago, I think on the 1st. Idk, I was bored with the old theme I had, and I always wanted to change it in some ways. I’m pretty happy with this one, so no more unexpected changes after this (I might change the color scheme, but that’s really it). And the big profile things disappeared, which is a plus!

      Oh, cool! Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚ Actually, I think it was around 730 words, so it was under the limit, which thank goodness it was, I write way too much sometimes. Lol.

        Yay, no more giant profile pics ๐Ÿ˜€

        Lol I think if it had been a short story I was hoping someone would just finish, I’d probably at this point close the submission form and just let you write as much of it as you want XD It’s collaborative, though, and that means no one person can keep the spotlight ๐Ÿ˜› Plus I’m positive other’s’ll be awesome, too! ๐Ÿ˜€

        Hence, the reason for limits! Lol.
        But seriously, your challenge is really exciting and fun. I can’t wait to see how it’s going to turn out when it’s all finished. I bet it’ll be pretty cool, as well, with everyone’s different writing styles in the mix.

    I must admit to prefering dogs to cats. But I’m also fond of cats. I’m not sure though how my guide dog, Trigger would get on with a cat! Plus I’m on the second floor of a block of flats. Its a large flat with plenty of room for Trigger and I and, of course he goes everywhere with me as a guide dog, so isn’t left alone very frequently. However I wouldn’t be able to let a cat out (from the second floor), and it would feel wrong to me with it not having freedom to go out if it wished to. Kevin

      Realistically, as much as I adore my cats, some days I’d imagine I would prefer a dog. They’re so much fun, and as you said, you can’t really walk a cat outside. That would be difficult!

      Anyway, thanks for checking out the blog. It is much appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi Lucy! Like you, I loooove to read and write and don’t have much interest in TV either. I saw that you liked on of my posts I and wouldn’t have clicked on your wonderful site if it wasn’t for that adorable cat on your profile picture!! I love cats and own two myself, one black and one ginger, just like you! If you don’t mind me asking, how many cats do you have?

      Hi! So nice to meet you.

      Hahaha! I now have to thank a certain cat for that. Extra cat nip for everyone! I’m so glad you checked out the blog.

    Hi Lucy, you’ve been and liked plenty of posts on my blog over the last few weeks so I thought it was about time to return to say hello.


    Sorry, not a cat person (small white Jack Russell-type terrier) but very likely to be sardonic, tongue-in-cheek, wry and generally flippant. As you know by now.
    Anyway, off to have a read… ๐Ÿ˜‰

      What? You’re not a cat person? I’m sorry, but this certainly cannot do… Just kidding!

      Russell terriers are so awesome. They look very friendly. My cats, not so much…

      Sardonic, (check), wry and flippant (check), tongue-in-cheek (check), you have come to the right place!

    Quick observation: the large majority of your posts contain either the word “dead” or “death.” ๐Ÿ™‚ No particular meaning imparted, just saying. Best regards – CC


    • April 30, 2020 at 12:09 pm

      Hahaha. Is it such a bad thing? ๐Ÿ˜
      Iโ€™m kidding.

      That is an interesting observationโ€”one that I have thought about before in my work. I do try not to use the same wording or phrasing all the time, but I guess I am too inspired by modernist poets or poetry.

      If it aint so
      think, with all the indentations
      in the death bed of poetry
      something habitual as
      the moon oozes and creates
      like Dionysus, a drifting eye,
      glistening in brevity (terse and into verse)
      the underfoot of both vice, love, and shame,
      as if the earth left
      and we poets, the true fools and players,
      observe our ghosts
      in the gardenias, our bed of scarlets.
