We are so sad to have had to cancel the 2020 Flash Fiction which was due to take place on the midsummer weekend in June this year. But a good thing! For the second year running the festival is shortlisted in the Saboteur Awards Best Literary Festival category. Thanks very much to all who voted. The festival, quite small as festivals go (about 120 participants) in a weekend package (like Glastonbury as some people said) was so much fun last year, and we hope to run it again in June 2021 with more or less the same programme. Most of the presenters said they could come and lead the same workshops on all angles of flash fiction. And here’s a picture of our Festival Director Jude Higgins showcasing all our Festival anthologies with an outfit colour co-ordinated with the books.
