A Stash Of Flashes – Launched

An utterly fabulous event launching the Worcestershire LitFest Flash Fiction Anthology for 2015 took place on Sunday 22 November. Flash writers who entered the competition read their work in a most enjoyable afternoon at Drummonds, The Swan With Two Nicks. This was the fourth Flash Fiction competition for the LitFest and (if this is possible!) it gets better every year. Many, many thanks to all who contributed, it was the culmination of many months of work for the writers, the organisers and the judges.
