Flash Fiction Festival 2019

New Raffle Prizes for the Flash Fiction Festival

We’ve already been given some great raffle prizes, which are listed on our sponsors’ page, which you link to from the banners on our home page, and we now have some more prizes described below. We’re donating to Air Ambulances South West this year, a charity supported by Hall and Woodhouse, who haves sponsored a full price place at this year’s festival and have donated a £40 voucher for an evening meal in one of their restaurants

It’s Ad Hoc Fiction’s fourth birthday this week and as well as donating their services to compile the Festival Anthology Three after this year’s festival they are also donating a birthday bottle of ‘Ad Hoc Pinot Noir’ for the raffle. We think writers who have not had their 150 word micros accepted for the ebook some weeks, may find the label of this bottle fitting.

Thank you also to Nancy Stohlman, Damhnait Monaghan, Santino Prinzi, Jude Higgins, Tara Laskowski, Nod Ghosh and Michelle Elvy who are donating books.

And a further thank you to Nod Ghosh who is also donating some of the lovely glass pendants she makes. Some examples of them are pictured here.

2019 Flash Fiction Festival UK, Booking Open Now

Sunny days at Trinity

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.

Presenters Carrie, Nancy and Meg

    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.
