Dulwich Festival Flash Fiction 2021 – Winners

And the results are in! The winners of the 2nd Dulwich Festival Flash Fiction Competition have been announced, along with the highly commended entries. The Festival was delighted that author, blogger & book reviewer Alice Castle alongside poet, playwright & creative entrepreneur Nick Makoha and author & journalist, Marianne Kavanagh joined us again as our judging panel. The judges were encouraged to see how many people have participated and they thoroughly enjoyed reading them all and selecting the winners.
