100 Words of Astounding Beauty

Jan 20, 2021

A flash-fiction podcast where a handful of writers create an original story with a limited wordcount in a limited amount of time. In this episode the writers make a first story then write a response to each other’s story. They then respond to those responses to make a short chain of inspiration and homage.

In this episode we have:
Sail-dem' by Amy Sutton, inspired by ‘Untitled’ by Tom McNally

‘Metal Ache' by Claudia Treacher, inspired by ‘Hungry for Jewels’ by Joshua Crisp
'Redox' by Tom McNally, inspired by ‘Rust’ by Claudia Treacher
