  • Bridges Are What You Make of Them
  • Bridgehope
  • Girls of Summer
  • Her Life’s Span
  • Looped
  • The Boy Who Only Ever Wanted to Build Bridges
  • The Knack of Gaining Entry
  • The Stinkhouse Bridge
  • Thor is to Birfrost as I am to the Mersey, I Wish

We’ll have the results in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, get writing for the first themed flash deadline of 2021!
