I’d Like to Start By…

Flash Fiction

My micro-flash fiction, ‘I’d Like to Start By…’ was ‘Highly Commended’ in the Lunate’s, International Women’s Day competition, ‘Who Run the World?’.

The opening lines are below. Please follow the link to the Lunate website to read this, the winning piece and all the other highly commended flashes.

The woman pauses her acceptance speech almost as soon as she’d begun. Could the audience hear her? Was her voice powerful enough to carry beyond the first row?
