We have 17 wonderful Flash Fiction stories which have made the second cut in the selection process. With a huge response and such high quality entries, its made paring entries down from the longlist very difficult.

What will be heartbreaking and very difficult now is to pare this list down to our top 12 – 15. Congratulations to all those who are listed below.

Our line up of stories to be published in the anthology will be announced on the 20th of July.

Our People’s Choice  – the fun (voluntary) competition run parallel to Twisted Tales was open to all entrants who submitted a flash fiction with Twisted Tales this year.  Voting has finished and the winner will be announced shortly. The People’s Choice Flash is honoured as being the first story printed within the anthology.
