A Collaborative Flash

Posted on: May 14th, 2012 by Claire - 2 Comments

A couple of months ago, New Zealand based writer and editor Michelle Elvy had the idea to celebrate International Women’s Day by having women writers across different countries collaborate on a piece of short fiction.

You can read the first of these stories here – a collaboration between Michelle, Martha Williams and Sarah Hilary in the UK and myself.

A different ending? Try the second story here, where Margot McCuaig joins in!

The third story has Jane Prinsep’s ending

And the fourth has jumped many borders, involving Kate Brown, Peggy Riley, Judith Teitelman and Beth Gignac.

Here are the final stories #5 & #6 and  #7 & #8  featuring new blood in the shape of Anita Chapman, Toby Cogswell, Jules Archer, Beate Sigriddaughter, Myra King, Marit Meredith and Christine Nedahl.

I’ve found it really interesting reading where each writer took the story, and seeing how writing styles can blend together. Thanks, Michelle for a fun experiment!
