Bailey’s Writing Tips podcast ‘short stories’ episode number 40 went live today and contained three flash fictions and a batch of 6-worders, that have appeared on my blog as Flash Fiction Fridays. Do email me should you like to submit your own. And if you’re after writing tips, there are loads on this blog’s writing-101 page.
This episode contained: the ninth batch of 6-word stories by William Bortz, Salvatore Buttaci, Tony Tibbenham, Mark K, Steph Post, Maria, Roger Hurn, Joan H. Young, KS Tan, and yours truly, then three longer pieces:
- Drawings (255 words) by poet, short story author and blogger Jade Kennedy,
- Where There Is Hope There Is Hunger (420-words) by Chris Farley, and
- Both Sides (302 words) by yours truly, Morgen Bailey.

Her poetry has been included in various zines and she is now looking to find more homes for her flash fiction.
Jade’s blog is ‘Poetry Musings’ at www.jadekennedypoet.blogspot.co.uk.
Upon moving to London, a bit like Dick Whittington, searching for streets of gold, he happened upon a beautiful Italian lady who later decided to take him to the sunny realm of southern Switzerland, where he can still be found, smiling inanely, continuously in search of Weissbier.
When he is not working or drinking he sits in front of the computer, searching for fictional inspiration. You can find Chris via his blogs http://christopherfarley.wordpress.com and http://talkingtosh.wordpress.com.
