But ten days ago, something kind of wonderful happened. Many of my Twitter friends were horrified by the news (I won't go into details, but I'm sure we all know the reasons why) and as an antidote Stephanie Hutton (@tiredpsych) offered help and support to a fairly new writer of flash fiction. Naturally, replies came in quickly and Stephanie ended by accepting sixteen writers into a group called #SistersOfFlash. Stephanie jokingly said that she is procrastinating about working on her novel but the truth of it is, she is a hugely talented writer with an enormous heart. She is incredibly busy but she's still found time to reach out and to make a difference - to offer a hand to writers who could do with a little bit of direction or a critique of their work.

Stephanie has had many pieces of flash fiction published and she has written a beautifully haunting and evocative novella in flash called Three Sisters of Stone, published by Ellipsis Zine. You can find my review of it here.
Since then, Gaynor Jones (@Jonzeywriter) has offered writing support to women - amazing! I'm blown away by the kindness of others. Do you know of any others? I'd love to hear about them and read their work - and shout all about them on Twitter. :o)
