I was delighted to be long listed from almost six thousand entries to the 2018 Commonwealth Short Story Prize. The shortlist of just 24 stories has now been announced. Good luck to the finalists!
National Flash Fiction Day in the UK (June 16th) is now in its 7th year. I was delighted that my flash fiction piece, Death of a Friend, was Highly Commended in their recent 100-word competition, with the 600+ list of submissions narrowed to just ten.
