Update...

The Flash Fiction Offensive will be open again shortly.

I'm honoured (and daunted) to be the new "editor" of this great site. My name is David Barber. Some of you may know me from the blogosphere but for those who don't, you can browse my blog here and check out who I am and what I'm about.

Currently I'm sifting through a backlog of submissions whilst getting used to the whole thing. Please bear with me. I'll have the site up and running as soon as possible. There will be a run of stories that are already here and then I will re-open for submissions.

A big thanks goes out to Matt Louis (and Glenn Grey) for offering me this opportunity. I won't let you down.

Thanks!!

Who'd have thought all those years ago when we discussed writing, over a pint while shooting pool... that we'd BOTH become editors! :)
Brilliant achievement, mate. I tip my hat to you.
Ps. Some fookin editor I am... damn typos!
