My Writing

My name is James Burt, and I like writing microfictions. I run the occasional Not for the Faint-Hearted writing workshop, sometimes make story-zines, and perform once in a while. There’s a e-book of mine on Amazon, Famous for 15 People. I’m currently working on a set of tiny stories about the South Downs Way.
