Sophie van Llewyn
We are delighted to welcome Sophie van Llewyn to the National Flash Fiction Day team as this year's guest editor for the 2020 National Flash Fiction Day anthology.
She'll be joining NFFD Co-Director Ingrid Jendrzejewski in putting together this year's anthology of flash fiction from around the world.
We'll be announcing this year's theme in time for those of you participating in FlashNaNo projects this November, but in the meantime, you can get a better sense of Sophie's work by checking out Bottled Goods, her novella-in-flash that has been longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2019 and for the Republic of Consciousness Prize. You can also find links to her online publications on her website, sophievanllewyn.com.
