Fringe in a Flash - Q&A

May 13th, 2014 · Comments

Our final podcast from the April BristolCon Fringe event featured a discussion with all of the writers who kindly read their flash fiction for us. As seems to be the fashion, it turned into a discussion about writing: in particular how and why one would write flash as opposed to any other length of fiction.
