Johanna Robinson

Runner-up for the Bath Flash Fiction Novella-In-Flash Award 2019 is Johanna Robinson for her novella-in-flash, Homing.

Michael Loveday writes in his Jury ReportThe 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.”
