Join our ever-growing podcast family and get your creative juices flowing. We choose our favourite stories to be read out on the podcast…
 
This season's first prompt was a set of photos: I saw scattered and trampled flowers on the beach on holiday last month, followed by a rock that looked like it had grown around a gold ring, all kinds of images of broken hearts came to mind... but what did you make of it?
 
Listen to our favourite stories, written by Sandy Biddles and Carolyn Ward-Daniels. There is even one written by Daizi that April snuck in there at the end. We hope you love them as much as we did.

Bare Books Bite-size for your listening pleasure!
We had our first live gig in April at Copper Cogs in Long Eaton in the Midlands. We had some totally amazing and fun interaction with the audience who wrote us some excellent flash fiction, inspired by photographs from two local photographers, Chris Davis and Tony fisher.
This bite-size episode brings you the last of those stories - the last of our three favourites from the night:  
Inspiration For A Painting by Carolyn Ward-Daniels. 
We will be back on 30th May with a review of Rapid Eye Movement by Amanda Sheridan.
See you then xx
Download and listen. Let us entertain you in true Bare Book's style. Maybe you'll be tempted to write a flash fiction story of your own, 500 to 1000 words if you are feeling compelled to put pen to paper. We can't wait to read it.
