Writer and Author of Flash and Micro-fiction
Jacqueline's interest in writing started after completing a writing course, where she discovered flash fiction and micro fiction.
She has already started making inroads to the literary world. In July 2020 she was published by Paper Nations and the Bristol Old Vic. More recently she has been published with Grindstone Literary Ltd., through a competition as one of the Micro Fiction prize winners. Her submission, ‘No Closure’ has been published in Grindstone’s 2020 Anthology.
She has also read some of her work in live situations for writers’ groups and an online Music and Spoken Word festivals. She performed ‘Three Good Things’, a drabble on BBC Radio.
Her stories are an eclectic mix, some will bring a smile to the reader’s face, others a tear to the eye or awaken emotions and others will explore darker areas which are not comfortable to contemplate.
She has also been exploring the world of Nanoism, but written in the style of Haikus, not in the traditional sense, but more as the 5/7/5 syllable count short story and is in the process of producing a book of these Haikus; 365, one for each day of the year.
These are crafted in such a way as to allow the reader to take them at face value or dig deeper and create their own narrative.
