The third Flash Fiction Festival is taking place the weekend of 28th-30th June, at Trinity College, Bristol, the same lovely venue as last year in Bristol UK. And we hope many of you who came last year will come again. This is what Vanessa Gebbie, who has run workshops at our previous two festivals and is running one this year said this morning on social media:
“Flashers UK and beyond, get in there. It’s not just friendly, it’s focussed, hugely useful, inspirational, brilliant for networking and great, great fun!”
This year, we’ve flash fiction teachers and writers coming from New Zealand as well as from UK, Ireland, US, Germany, Italy and Cyprus. And there’s even more to choose from. Plus an extra, three hour pre-festival workshop with Kathy Fish on the Friday afternoon before the festival, which you can book separately. Take a look at the workshop page and the programme. It’s all very exciting.
We also have more team members to help everything run smoothly. Helen Rye is in charge of entertainments. Expect evening Karaoke after the day’s events are over in a bar decorated with fairy lights. Alison Woodhouse is helping with hospitality with a focus on the bar, and Danielle Miles is officially in charge of the bookshop and the raffle. Have a look at the gallery of pictures to get some idea of the atmosphere last year. We expect it will be just as fun and as vibrant this time.
- If you haven’t got a copy already, you can read some stunning micros that were prompted by the Festival workshops in 2017 and 2018 in Flash Fiction Festival One and Flash Fiction Festival Two. The books are available in print from the Ad Hoc Fiction Bookshop and digitally on Kindle and Nook. And anyone coming to the festival this year, will have the opportunity to submit to Flash Fiction Festival Three, which will be published by the end of the year.
