Judging the Bath Flash Fiction Award
Updated: Mar 18
It's always a joy to read a story that stays with you. Serving as a guest judge for the UK's Bath Flash Fiction Award was a great experience. The winning and commended stories explored life-or-death struggles, forbidden attraction, and the complicated language of love between parents and children. You can read my comments on the competition's seventeenth award and the prize-winning stories on the award group's website.
