At last, the anthology of flash fictions from the presenters and participants from the online days and the face-to-face weekend, last July 2022,in Bristol, UK, is back from the printers and free copies are being posted off to contributors this week! The anthology is the fifth one in the rainbow series. Two more colours to go (indigo and violet) until we complete the spectrum and go into the white space of what happens next!
Flash Fiction Festival Volume Five, published by Ad Hoc Fiction and compiled by 2022 Flash Fiction Festival Director, Jude Higgins and former flash fiction festival director, Diane Simmons, is split into several sections: stories from presenters; stories by competition winners from several of our online days, 2021 and 2022 which were not included in our previous anthologies; winners of the 2022 Pokrass prize and stories by writers who came to the weekend last year, many of them inspired by workshops at the festival. The anthology will be available to buy from the Ad Hoc Fiction bookshop very soon and also from Amazon worldwide in paperback.
Over seventy flash fictions!

Ad Hoc Fiction will be producing Flash Fiction festival Vol 6, hopefully in the late Autumn this year, after this year’s festival 14-16th July. All participants will be invited to submit stories for inclusion and there will be further prize winning stories from the online days and the Pokrass Prize.
Hope you can come to the festival for fun and inspiration to write and submit!
And STOP PRESS – Jude has decided to hold a late launch event for this anthology and ‘Dandelion Years’ the sixth Bath Flash Fiction Award anthology at the end of March in Bath. Hopefully, we’ll get a nice crowd of readers to read from both books. More details soon!
