I was chuffed to bits to be asked why I write by Lindsay Stanberry-Flynn for her series of the same title. To see my response, follow this link to her blog – do leave a comment – it was a lovely thing to be asked about 🙂
Last Saturday saw the final of the first Worcestershire LitFest & Fringe Flash Fiction competition that was organised by author Lindsay Stanberry-Flynn as part of the Worcestershire Literary Festival. The competition was judged by Lindsay and by Calum Kerr, the King of Flash Fiction himself! Calum had only recently completed National Flash Fiction Day and also a whole year of writing a Flash every day, you may have heard about it on BBC Radio.
Maybe those who didn’t enter this time would like to see the finalists’ work—there were nearly 100 entries from all over the UK and from further afield. A Worcestershire writer, Amy Rainbow, was the winner. Most of the flash writers were present on Saturday and read out their work, suffice it to say that Amy’s flash moved many people to tears. Plans are already being made to run the competition again in 2013.
You can get A Flash Of Fiction, the anthology created from the submissions, from the publishers: Black Pear Press. Click here for details and scroll to the base of the page.
Happy Sunday afternoon to everyone.
Lindsay said she’d like to hear The Robin Song so you’ll find an audio file here dedicated to Lindsay.
I’m still experimenting with the visuals for audio files and am very much learning about how to do this, hints and tips would be welcome.
I would also like to hear your thoughts on whether audios add a dimension to or detract from the poem in its written form.
So, you will see below a link entitled ‘audio file’, which, if you click on it, should open up in YouTube.
