Flash Fiction



A snapshot of some of the shorter pieces pupils have been working on this term. Quite a few of these were entered into a competition with visiting writer Bali Rai - Jack Colley's 'Shadows' was one of the winners. There are also various spin offs from Roald Dahl's timeless 'Tales of the Unexpected'; most of these are based on the strange bet featured in 'The Man From The South'... that one has to be read to be believed!

Keep your eyes peeled for a forthcoming competition with prizes - the deadline will be New Year 2012 and the themes will be 'Beginning' or 'The New'. Get scribbling down those ideas and good luck!

(The next series of posts will be poems - sorry for any delay to authors - I'm just clearing the decks ready to get these all posted next Friday...)
