Flash Fiction Festival 2019 Fri 28th, Sat 29th & Sun 30th June 2019

Read about our generous sponsors…

Following on from the success of the second ever literary festival entirely dedicated to flash fiction which took place in July 2018 in Bristol and attracted flash fiction writers from around the world, we are happy to host the 2019 Flash Fiction Festival UK in the same venue, Trinity College Bristol which is in Stoke Bishop, a beautiful part of Bristol and a short journey from the city centre.

Follow Us

The Flash Fiction Festival is for beginning and experienced writers who want to learn more about flash fiction – an exciting and continually emerging short-short form of prose, growing in popularity around the world. Come and be inspired by leading flash fiction practitioners from the UK, USA, New Zealand, Ireland, Italy, Germany and Cyprus to immerse yourself in writing, reading and listening to flash fiction throughout the weekend. All sections of the community, from all corners of the globe, are welcome.
