Some people have really shitty Christmases and a long, long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, so did I. In light of this tinsel-less fact, here’s a metaficion of mine in which I stick three heads up my own fictional arse. Contains a seasonal sprinkling of sprouts.
As Shakin’ Stevens would say – ‘Merry Christmas – everyone.’

Two of my flash fictions are available to read in the book

Why not start to write creatively?

From 6.30 p.m. – 7.45 p.m. New members welcome. From beginners to advanced.

How it Works:
Unholster your pencil and write creatively on the spot to a bespoke, tinselled prompt given out on the night. Then read what you’ve written to the group for lavish praise, iridescent bouquets and international awards 🙂 Or bring pre-prepared writing along and read that if you wish. The choice is yours.

Or just turn up on the night with your own pencil.
