How, when and why did writers from around the world become addicted to Flash Fiction?
Two or more writers are featured each month of the series. Check out our programme page for the exact times they are reading and talking about their journey into writing flash fiction. Some, like E E Rhodes and Sage Tyrtle, our first ‘addicts’ have only been writing since 2020. Others longer. I think everyone is hooked!
