I Went Fishing!
Yes! I went fishing and I’ve caught a fish!
I wrote on the blog last year about my disappointment when my flash fiction ‘Errol’s Eyebrows’ made the shortlist for the Fish Publishing flash fiction competition, but then wasn’t a winner.
Roll on a year and my flash ‘Dexter’s Lover’ is one of the ten winners and will be published in their anthology out in July. It will be launched at the West Cork Literary Festival and I’ve been invited to read!
Fish runs several writing competitions every year, short story, poetry and flash fiction. They are highly regarded with entries from all over the world. This year’s flash received 1,407 entries. I’ve wanted to get somewhere with them for ages, but long and shortlist have been the best I’ve achieved. Until now. I was so happy I cried when I got the results.
And who knows? I might have to be on a flight to Cork!
