About

Fusilli Writing is the concept of Chris Tattersall and began life as Fusilli Flash Fiction, a 200 word story competition where the stories entered required a twist. This competition is now free and can be entered via our email: fusilli-writing@outlook.com or via our contact page. See our competition page here.

Chris has a background in NHS research with numerous peer reviewed academic publications which include two articles on mind mapping, however his writing passion is for flash fiction primarily of less than 1,000 words. Chris uses mind mapping in many areas of his writing (plot, title and character development) and has written an article about the use of mind mapping in combating writer’s block, which is available here.

Other resources / articles on flash fiction and creative writing written by Chris can be accessed here.

Chris’s creative writing career began in 2015 after winning the ‘Lacomic Cup’ hosted by Headstuff.com which involved a five-round flash fiction competition and gave him his first ever writing payment of 1,000 Euros. Wouldn’t anyone get addicted after that?

His non-academic writing credits can be seen below.
