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

Funded and organised by Bath Flash Fiction Award

The next Festival dates are booked 28th-30th June 2019, at the same venue pictured below.

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. Save the date!  We already have a brilliant line up of presenters including Kathy Fish from the US, Frankie McMillan from New Zealand and many of the wonderful teachers who came last year — Nuala O’Connor from Ireland, Christopher Allen from the US, Vanessa Gebbie, David Gaffney, Peter Blair and Ashley Chantler from the UK and several more in the pipeline to be confirmed. More information available soon.

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 and Germany and 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.
