Three winning flash fiction novellas from the 2017 Bath Novella-in-Flash Award demonstrate the scope and range of this increasingly popular genre.
How to Make a Window Snake by Charmaine Wilkerson… creates a brilliant picture window through which we see a loving but deeply wounded family trying to survive more tragedy.
A Safer Way to Fall by Joanna Campbell… stakes are high and violence becomes a reliable companion. One realises that there simply is no safe way to fall.
Things I Dream About When I’m Not Sleeping by Ingrid Jendrzejewski… beautifully detailed portraits, thrusts us into a world of emotional limbo, watching the asymmetry of a couple grappling with mismatched wishes and obsessions.”
