On Wednesday last we gathered our shortlist, our judges, and our favourite flash fiction writer David Gaffney, and tucked ourselves into the tightest little nook Chorlton had to offer. And despite uncomfortable levels of intimacy (or because of it perhaps), we had a simply gorgeous night of little length literature.
Have a look at our Facebook page for pictures.
And the winners? They were and still are as follows:
1st Place: Looking for an Astrolabe by Michael Conley
2nd Place: This Kitten I Knew by Simon Sylvester
3rd Place: Joint winners: The Clockman by Cathy Lennon & Pins and Needles by Guy Garrud
Congratulations to Michael, Simon, Cathy and Guy – stunning stories all round. Many thanks to everyone who came to the event and did a reading; all the shortlistees demonstrated just how strong our entries were this year.
Coming up next, we have a super special event planned for Didsbury Arts Festival. Watch this space….
