Along with recent news, this site also contains an archive of MW Bewick’s long-running Possible Fictions project, a weekly short piece of flash fiction that ran for more than six years up until September 2016. Each entry is precisely 100 words long and was inspired, however loosely, by real events occurring in the world that week.
