I'm thrilled and honoured to be awarded First Prize in the current Bath Flash Fiction Award (UK). Sincere thanks to judge Meg Pokrass, and to Jude Higgins and all at BFFA. Congratulations to the other award winners: Nod Ghosh, David Rhymes, and Melissa Goode. (By chance, this part of the world is well represented - 3 out of the 4 winners are from Australia or New Zealand.)
My winning piece, Tying the Boats, can be read here.
