What people have said about Michael Buckingham Gray's writing:
"When asked what my favourite flash [fiction] of all time is, I used to say 'Easy Come, Easy Go', [by Shannon O’Rourke] and also mention David Gaffney’s Sawn-Off Tales (2006; 'Pop-Tarts', in particular, is wonderfully dark). Now, I have a new favourite. It is a masterpiece. Michael Buckingham-Gray’s 'And Brings Up Loose Dirt'... I could re-read it, and admire it, and envy Buckingham-Gray, every day."

What people have said about Michael Buckingham Gray's tutoring:
"[Michael's] workshop was inspiring, informative and has given me a great start to writing for my own enjoyment."

"Michael highlighted the importance of describing what an emotion feels like when we are writing, and not just saying what the emotion is. The children embraced this idea... rushed back to their desks and as quietly as church mice put their creative ideas to paper."
