Wigleaf

The editors at Wigleaf emailed to say that a flash of mine, The Rocket Laundry, was 'a big favourite' from their recent submissions and they want to publish it, probably in August. This is a new venue for me, and one that's regarded highly by writers I admire, so I'm happy to have made the grade. The story was first written as part of a flash challenge at the Fiction Workhouse last year, since when I've redrafted it using the useful feedback from my fellow Workhousers.

The story is one of several I'm working on based in or around the internment camp where my grandparents and mother were held during prisoner during the war. So it's a story close to my heart. I'm glad it will be published in a weighty venue.
