Brimstone author Sebastian Hayes’ radio play Besieged was well received at its first performance at the Shaftesbury Fringe Festival last June. It has since been recorded by Ridgeway Radio of Dorchester. Sebastian is preparing a new play for this year’s Fringe, on 30 June.

Keith Walton is converting the blog of his cycle ride across France,, into a book, provisionally titled In Search of France’s Green Meridian. He will do a presentation at the Shaftesbury Fringe on 30 June. Check for details. Keith was awarded second prize in Tears in the Fence Flash Fiction competition. His piece, ‘A Bonfire of the Vanities’ was published in TiF 66. You can also read it at, together with other pieces he entered.

Flash Fiction

Flash fiction – under 400 words – is an increasingly popular form, and worth considering if your writing crosses over poetry and prose. Read some examples, and have a go!

Tears in the Fence Festival weekend is on 14-16 September. Tears in the Fence is a long-running and highly-regarded literary magazine, well worth reading, and their festivals are always stimulating and enjoyable.

Keith Walton’s novella The Divided Wood, a tale of rival siblings creating very different ideal worlds in the great wood, is available free on request – find it on our Buying page. We are hoping to open a page specifically for ebooks. More news soon!
