Bailey’s Writing Tips podcast ‘short stories’ episode number 39 went live today and contained four flash fiction pieces / three flash fictions and a batch of 6-worders, that originally appeared on my blog as Flash Fiction Fridays. Do email me should you like to submit your own.
See the links above to read the stories… or hear my dulcet tones on the podcast.
The podcast is available via Google’s Feedburner, and will be available shortly via iTunes, Podbean (when it catches up), Podcasters (which takes even longer) or Podcast Alley (which doesn’t list the episodes but will let you subscribe).
Now a little about the authors of the three flash fiction pieces…

Following careers as a computer programmer and a technical writer, Miriam Drori began writing in order to raise awareness of social anxiety. The scope of her writing has widened since then, but she hasn’t lost sight of her original goal.
Miriam has had a few short stories published online and in anthologies, and is due to have her first novel, Neither Here Nor There, published later this year by Crooked Cat Publishing.
Born and raised in London, Miriam lives in Jerusalem with her husband, two sons and a cat. When not writing, she enjoys walking, reading, dancing, listening to music and visits from her daughter who is studying in Tel-Aviv.

Rohini Sunderam is a retired advertising copywriter and freelance writer who dabbles in prose and poetry. It was in university that Rohini Sunderam realised she had started a life-long romance with words. She’d flirted with them as a child having once written a dramatic piece for her brother and sister, to whom she would tell fanciful tales, in order to pass away the long hot summer afternoons, in New Delhi, India while their parents were asleep.
The affair with words and imagining led Rohini to her line of work and she became an advertising copywriter. A trade she still plies after more than 30 years. In the course of her work she has written ad copy – for films, radio, and print- in India, Bahrain and Canada. She has also written two books as commissioned assignments, her articles have appeared in The Statesman, Calcutta, India; The Globe & Mail, Canada and The Halifax Chronicle Herald, Nova Scotia, Canada. Under the pen name Zohra Saeed, Rohini is the author of Desert Flower a romantic story set in Bahrain in the 1930s and published by Red Rose Publishing. Her stories, articles and poetry have also appeared in the following online publications: The Flaneur, Sketchbook and Lucid Rhythms (poetry); a poem was selected in an international competition and appeared in Poetry Rivals’ 2012 Collection; Published by Remus House UK. Rohini has participated in the Colours of Life poetry festival in Bahrain 2012, 2013 and is scheduled to do so again in 2014. She has a blog: FictionPals which she wishes she was more active than it currently is. Rohini Sunderam is a member of the Bahrain Writers’ Society.
