#foundfiction has inspired my writing group to read and write more short stories. That's because it's reminded us how fun and simple the short story format is. I stumbled upon #foundfiction in Nottingham – it's been so exciting to take part in the project as a distributor. I'm sure there are lots of writing groups out there that'd love to get involved by sharing their words with others.
