|Christopher Allen, Volcano Diver|
My fiction and creative non-fiction have appeared in many places over the last few years. Links to these publications are at I Must Be Off! HERE. Go have a look. Many of these publications are in online journals, so they're free to read.
What I've been up to . . .
My latest story, "What Strangers Do," is live at [PANK]! This one is not appropriate for children.
My story "Fences" took third prize in the Exeter Writers Short Story Competition. You can read it HERE.
I have a story, "Father-Son Activity," at The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.
The winners of the 2017 I Must Be Off! Travel Writing Competition have been announced. Check out the I Must Be Off! front page for details.
