Selected Awards and Achievements

Receiving an award for Flash Fiction from Tim Stevenson

My main writing achievement so far is a "Highly Commended" award in the Bridport Flash Fiction Competition (please click here for the winners list). This award earned me publication in the Bridport Prize Anthology.

When the anthology was published, I was honoured to receive the following responses from Kit de Waal (who won the Bridport Flash Fiction Competition two years in a row, 2014-2015).

Lovely responses from Kit de Waal :)

Other achievements in the Bridport Prize Competition:

Writing a million words

In 2016, I set myself the task of writing 1,000,000 words in a year — a project that involved producing an average of more than 2,700 words per day. I completed the task which gained me drafts of several new novels, as well as over 300 short stories and works of poetry and flash fiction. To help me stay focused on the project, I documented it here: "A million words in 2016".

The Casket of Fictional Delights

My flash fiction pieces "Sync" and "Floating" won 2nd and 3rd prize respectively in the Casket of Fictional Delights competition 2018, judged by renowned flash fiction author, David Gaffney. Professional audio recordings were produced of both pieces. "Floating" had previously been long-listed by the Bath Flash Fiction Award and Reflex Fiction.
