  • Being highly commended in the Michael Terrence publishing short story comp meant I’m in their anthology, ‘A Tail of a Mouse’ – to me this is a win!
  • The Monkey Collection’s next volume of stories will contain my story, ‘Forgetment’

  • Ink Tears

  • The Just Write/Writing Magazine creative writing competition:


  • Hour of Writes

My name on this site is ‘Seaside Scribbler’ Here’s a link to my entries page, including ones that won: Please bear in mind these were written in an hour start to finish with no planning and are full of errors!

  • Write-On-Site

A bit like Hour of Writes but harder. You get half an hour, and you get the prompt there and then. Brilliant fun! Here’s a couple of mine that won:

  • Flash 500

Fancy something a bit longer? Flash fiction is great for focussing your mind. It’s amazing how few words you need to tell a story…
