Both of my shortlisted NFFD competition entries were highly commended.
I am very honoured to have two of my three entries shortlisted for the National Flash Fiction Day competition.
They are “May 1941: Day and Night in Crete” and “Standing Water”. The winners will be announced at the Flash in the Pan event on the 22nd at Space Academy, where I will be reading both of them.
I will also be recording these pieces for Morrin Rout’s radio show Bookenz, which airs at 12 noon on PlainsFM on Tuesday. It will also be available as a podcast.
It’s all very exciting!
I will be doing a very short reading at the National Flash Fiction Day event in Christchurch, alongside some great flash fiction writers including two-time winner Frankie McMillan.
It will be a great event to listen to some excellent stories, and see the winners of the competition announced.
See the Facebook event page for more information.
Check out my latest story, published in Flash Frontier, here. The setting is Lake Benmore, where I’ve camped many times, and where you can still see that there wasn’t always a lake.
Thank you psychopomp magazine for publishing my story “How to Sink and Live Simple, Like a Fish”
I wrote this for a competition for my real-life writing group, South Island Writers’ Association. It was my first time reading one of my stories, and the great reception gave me a lot of confidence to continue writing.
Special thanks to Foo Sek Han for some detailed proofreading.
A story I wrote – The Spring of the Air – has been published by the nice people at flash frontier. You can check it out here: You’ll need to scroll down a bit, It’s third to last.
