I’m proud to announce a particular success story today:

Runner-up for the Bath Flash Fiction Novella-In-Flash Award 2019 is Johanna Robinson for her novella-in-flash, Homing, to be published in its own volume later this year.


Johanna took my Needling Your Characters Workshop in December 2018 in order to finish the novella. During that time, she wrote seven flashes that all ended up in the final draft. “The novella wouldn’t be what it was without the workshop,” according to Johanna. So happy to hear that—a teacher’s dream.

Michael Loveday writes in his Jury Report“The flashes show subtle insight into human behaviour, are often genuinely moving, and the author has a way with closure—many flashes end with a lovely poise and delicacy.”
