"Over the years, success at Bridport has enhanced my confidence in my writing, and helped me to keep going. I landed a good teaching job partly because of my track record in the contests.

It's become a big competition, but it's kept hold of that vital human touch. I've met so many lovely people through Bridport. I feel happy whenever I think about it!"

David Swann (UK) – winner, Flash Fiction competition 2016
