The first fab workshop "Let’s start a story – Workshop to inspire setting, characters and plots. Brainstorm for titles etc. This is with the view to entering into a competition this year" was on Saturday and will be followed by

1st September 3."Let’s finish that story! – Final re-writes and read-throughs. Advice/feedback if wanted. Followed by a look at some of the competitions available."
Debbi is a published writer, of short stories and Flash Fiction. Her Flash publications are too numerous to mention but she is very proud to have a story in the collection "Flash Fiction for Flash Memory" "A special anthology and the first one created to deliver that special magic to adults struggling with memory loss, their families, friends and caregivers. Step into 60 original flash fiction stories that are short enough, between 500 and 750 words, to recall. Get carried along a path of unexpected plots that warm the heart, give chills, stir laughter and surprise." Available on Amazon.
Debbi was published in The Bath Short Story Award Anthology 2015. In the 90s she edited and wrote articles for a popular U2 fanzine and her most exciting achievement from those heady days was a 40 minute telephone interview with her hero Bono! She enjoyed the journalistic side of the magazine but her heart lies in fiction.
