Martin Durkin To Be Part of New Anthology


Flash Fiction Magazine and 101 Word Stories has confirmed that Martin Durkin will be part of their 2017 Anthology.

A specific publishing date will be announced shortly but Durkin has confirmed that his story “Matisse and the Modelling Nun” will be part of the series and available through Amazon, Apple, Kobo and other publication sale sites.

Inspired by the story surrounding artist Henri Matisse and Sister Jacques-Marie, Durkin decided to write a simple 101 word essay regarding their relationship.

“The idea behind the piece was not to go into great detail about the pair but to write something simple and intriguing enough that perhaps the reader would then want to go on and learn more – if – they don’t already know about their inspiring relationship” says Durkin.

More details to come…..
