If you follow me on Twitter then you’ll know I love a good online flash fiction challenge. They’re always so much fun and I get to know some really interesting writers. The Writers Victoria annual challenge is a bit of an institution (it must take them HOURS to go through all the submissions each day) and I was very pleased to win Day 16 this year, responding to the prompt Burst. You can read the whole month of winners over on the Writers Victoria’s blog.
This year’s theme was Pulped Fiction, which is also the name of the prize anthology. It’s a fantastic read and I’m feeling really humbled to be included alongside so many amazing writers. An online launch will be held on 7 April 2020. It’s free but you need to book to get the zoom link.
Thrilled to announce my very short story Collector was named the day 4 & overall winner of the Digital Writers’ Festival Swinburne Microfiction Challenge. You can read it over on Going Down Swinging!
