Our Flash Fiction judge Kit de Waal’s award winning novel ‘My Name is Leon’ (Viking) has been optioned for TV by Sir Lenny Henry’s Douglas Road Productions. The comedian said he wanted to retell the story for the screen because “there are so many young people out there that need their voice to be heard – perhaps Leon’s story will give them the courage to speak”.

Congratulations Wendy!
