Flash Forward

Things are coming together for National Flash Fiction Day. The judging for the micro-fiction competition is well under way. I've made my selection from the whole intake, so the next step is for Calum Kerr to juice the input from all the judges into a longlist for us to pick through.

To get some idea of who's coming to the BristolFlash events on Saturday 27th June, I've set up some Facebook events:
Flash Fiction Workshop at Bristol Central Library, from 13:30 to 16:30.
An Evening of Flash Fiction readings at Foyles, from 18:00 to 20:00.
An Evening of Drinks and Conversation somewhere nearby, from 20:00.
Please sign up and spread the word!

And to help spread the word, I will be appearing on Ujima Radio this Wednesday at midday. Cheryl Morgan will be talking to me about flash and fiction and NFFD, and I'll read a couple of very short pieces on air.

As a warm-up for NFFD, I'll be running a short flash writing workshop at BristolCon Fringe on Monday 22nd June, which will be followed by a flash-themed open mic. The Monday before that I'll be reading at Talking Tales again.

Looking back — yeah, I know, this post's title is all about forward, but with so many steps forward I think I can afford to take a couple back — "What I Tell You Three Times Is True", my runner-up flash in the Retreat West competition, has now appeared in the Retreat West anthology, Inside These Tangles, Beauty Lies. And — second step — my Sunday selection of four flash tales appeared on 101 Words last weekend, along with my reasons for choosing them.
