Welcome to the Writers’ Market Group daily feature.

Today we feature a poem titled Varga Girl by Nicole Ryan. A piece with a strong lyrical feel and an eerie, lingering, feeling of a woman who saw what they wanted to be and who they are now.

Here are some of the comments the story received:

What a cool, creative concept Nicole, and the words flow right off the pages of that magazine you described beautifully. Well done!

I wanted to be a Varga Girl too…..I’ve goosebumps reading this….
So real……

just brilliant!

Below is a snippet of the story.

Varga Girl

I tore you from the centre
of a magazine
carefully avoiding ripping holes
in the underside of your elbows

Nicole Ryan co-ordinates her writing with her duties of motherhood. Her writing time is similar to loose change found at the back of a lounge. She is proud mum to four beautiful children and happily married. She hopes to, one day, become a successful, published writer. With work such as Varga Girl, I can see this in the making.
