REVIEW of EATING MY WORDStheNATIONAL FLASH FICTION DAY ANTHOLOGYEdited by Callum KerrAngela ReedmanAmy McKeldenOne of the beauties of an anthology of flash fiction is that it gives exposure to such a

Eating My Words Free download í 5 R Calum Kerr and a host of others including Nuala Ní Chonchúir Nik Perring Nigel McLoughlin Cathy Bryant Tim Stevenson Tania Hershman and Jon Pinnock This is a wonderful collection of stories show casing the vital state of flash fiction toda. This flash fiction collection has my first ever published story in so this collection will always have a special place with me Despite this meaning my review is slightly biased this is a brilliant set of flash fiction stories based around the theme of the senses including the idea of a sense of something It is wonderful to see how so many people have taken this theme and interpreted it in their own way to devise these uniue uirky and emotional flashes of fiction Also included are the stories from the Micro Fiction competition which contain stories of 100 words in lengthThere are too many stories for me to go into detail about why I loved them What is truly great about the flash fiction form is that none of the stories in this collection are longer than 500 words some are much shorter yet each word launches off the page to create the same intensity you would find in longer pieces of fiction arguably so Read this collection Read the previous collections Scraps and Jawbreakers And when you have done that head over to Flash Flood and National Flash Fiction Day Flash Fiction is an incredible form and you will not regret discovering it for yourself if you haven t already done so
