‘When Paths Cross’ won the Microcosms Flash Fiction Short Story Competition 164 on 08/03/2019. Competition Judge Deanna Salser said ‘I absolutely loved this one, it caught my attention first time around, it was just my style; a little dark and twisted. I had such a hard time deciding the winner, but I had to go with this one, even after reading the whole lot over twice more’.

“The most important ingredient is an original storyline that can be transformed by the company into a performance”

“… your story was the winning entry… the company is now in rehearsal devising a piece of theatre … to develop a performance to celebrate rural heritage. Your story … is being woven into this performance to provide the narrative.” – Wren Chapman, Director of FRC
