“Cars And Children” Published in 23 Small Good Things

Short Fiction


23 Small Good Things

There are cars and there are children. They play together in the road. The children climb on the shiny bodies of the cars, leap from roof to roof, tap at windows with the backs of their heads, nuzzle bumpers, crawl beneath wheels to hide.


My very short prose piece “Cars And Children” appears in the anthology 23 Small Good Things, which was published by a student on the MA Prose course at the University of East Anglia, where I’m currently studying. The book collects the flash fiction of twenty prose writers and three poets. There was a limited print run, but the PDF version is freely available online.
