Festival Hosts

The form to apply for reduced cost places by February 29th is at the end of this post.
We’re also looking for more Bristol writers who will host other writers for the festival weekend. And more people who will offer very low cost accommodation locally for the two nights. Contact Diane Simmons if you can offer anything and need more information. .

Caravan Accommodation

If you have a camper van or a caravan with toilet facilities, there are spaces for five caravans/campers on the site with electric hook up. £15 per night. Contact us on the help desk for booking.

Apply for full or half price places by the end of February.

We currently have four full price places worth £250. These can also be split into half cost places, available for those with limited funds. Thank you very much to Hall and Woodhouse, two anonymous donors, (who also donated full price places last year) and the US based literary online magazine Smokelong Quarterly for supporting the festival.(Read more about Smokelong and their presence at previous festivals). If any other writers/organisations/individual wish to donate a full or half price place to give further opportunities for those who can’t afford to come, please contact us as soon as possible. We would very much appreciate this support

Please complete this form before midnight on Sunday 29th February, UK time to be considered for a reduced cost ticket.

As there are only a limited number of these tickets, we do ask that you provide us with as much information as possible to help us make our decisions, but only provide as much information as you feel comfortable sharing with us. We respect the need for confidentiality and we will not share any information you provide to us with anyone outside of the Festival Team.

What would it mean to you as an individual and as a writer to be able to attend the Flash Fiction Festival?

Lots of pictures here to give the atmosphere of the 2019 Festival! And do look at the ‘Flash Cab’ videos made by the Smokelong Quarterly Crew at the Flash Fiction Festival. They are very funny and you get to hear some flash
