Review of SHORT SHORT STORY SLAM #2 (April 2014):
"I’d heard great things about last year’s slam in Didsbury, but I wasn’t really prepared for the quality of the readings. Eleven writers all giving it their best shots, and there wasn’t a dud in the bunch... The Flashtag team were experts at wringing the maximum entertainment from the experience while also maintaining a friendly and supportive vibe throughout. It’s great to hear that they’re thinking of doing this every few months – judging by the big crowd last night it could do very well indeed." MANCHIZZLE

Review of SHORT SHORT STORY SLAM #1 (June 2013):
"We were able to indulge in something quite special... something unique, home-grown and radical, a real stand-out event. As the contest drew to a close I was left wondering if a new type of evening entertainment had just been revealed, one which reinvents writing – usually considered exclusive – as a form appropriate for and attractive to a general audience. (A) real literary treat." DIDSBURY LIFE

"Aaaargh, my brain, my brain, my brain. Someone get a doctor." A CONTESTANT
