My flash fiction piece has made it through to the shortlist for the Bath Flash Fiction Award. I won this award last year, so it's great to be back in with another chance. Last year's winning piece, 'Tying the Boats', was nominated for The Best Small Fictions and was one of just 53 pieces chosen by guest editor, Aimee Bender. A real thrill.
I'm delighted to see my flash fiction title on the long list for the Bath Flash Fiction Award. This is a big contest, attracting some fantastic flash writers from around the world. so it's great to be in with a chance.
