Entertaining - Educating - Informing
Hello and welcome!
This is a blog dedicated to all things culture, with the main focus on history, mythology and literature. Since its beginning in 2012, the core of this blog has not changed. The blog is open to contributors who wish to share their passion for culture and heritage, be interviewed on a related topic or to showcase a new book or publication. The aim of the Culture & Literature Corner Blog is to accumulate a collection of history, myths, folklore, book discussions, authors and more in one place. Join and be a part of the experience.
Publish, share and gain exposure for your interests which are also included in the Pen of Kesp Literature & Culture monthly newsletter. For more on contributing, check out the Submissions Page on the Ben Kesp Website.
When the blog was first created, it had another feature which some of you might remember called the "Storyboards". This was a monthly and later a weekly fiction serial story. The first monthly serial to grace the Storyboard was Friday, which has since gone on to have more novelettes added to its series, now called the Dr. Elizabeth Bannon Series. Other stories to feature were The Letter and The Witch of Ballyvale, which have both since been published as e-books. The storyboard concept has since moved to Wattpad, the platform to read stories on line.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, was the first book review, that later went on to start the Mondays Book Talk. Bram Stoker was the first post on an author and Grace O’Malley, the warrior queen of Mayo was the first historical figure of Ireland to feature, followed by Queen Maeve from ancient Ireland. All of the posts can be read and enjoyed today.
Now the blog receives guest posts opening up the world of literature, history, culture and mythology to include not only Europe but the world. I thank you for your continued support and I welcome contributors who would like to share their love of literature, history and mythology/folklore.
