cropped-kraehe1crow-828944_12802.jpgWalburga Appleseed likes her wine rich, her chocolate dark, and her fiction short. Her work – flash fiction and non-fiction and poetry –  has appeared in literary journals such as Into the Void, Café Aphra, Fiction Attic Press, with her first microfiction anthology The Princess and the Prick out with Harper Collins in October 2020.

She’s the winner of the 2018 Geneva Literary Prize for Non-Fiction, and the 2016 Winchester Literary Festival Award for Flash Fiction, and has been short- and longlisted for various competitions over the years, including the Bridport Prize (shortlist 2020) and Fish Flash Fiction (2014, 2016) competitions.

From 2016-2019, she worked as associate editor for Vestal Review.

In a parallel universe, and under an outrageous pseudonym, Walburga also writes for children. You may go and visit her on www.anita-lehmann.com

Oh, and you might have noticed. She likes crows.
