New to flash fiction and to the Bridport Prize, I entered at the last minute. 

What were the best bits of winning a prize - Publication? Publicity? The Event?  Well yes, all those and especially meeting the other, wonderful, winners. But it was being sought out through the crowd by the final reader to explain why my work was shortlisted and that he was pleased it had won a prize and hearing the judge David Gaffney's comments on the story - that has stayed with me: the recognition, the understanding of what I was trying to achieve. 

So have courage. Enter!
