Flash Fiction with Helen Fields
Helen Fields www.helenfields.com
'The standard here was very high. Writing flash fiction is incredibly hard. I was impressed by all the stories. Every one of them showed real imagination and promise. The use of language was superb. There was very little between the winners and other applicants. You should all be incredibly proud of yourselves. Flash fiction is a great way of polishing writing skills to make sure every word is well used. You are all seriously talented. Keep writing! I’d love to see what else you can come up with… '
It is fantastic development for our young writers to gain feedback from a professional in the industry and I am immensely grateful to Helen, and our students for engaging with this competition so readily.
The quality of writing was so impressive that I am compiling a 'Young Writers Anthology' to share some of our student's talented written compositions with the local community, in shared spaces like doctors waiting rooms, coffee shops and school reception areas.
