As part of National Flash Fiction Day here in the UK, there are various activities taking place on the day Itself (this Saturday June 27th) including an afternoon of flash fiction workshops upstairs at Bristol Central Library, between 1.30pm and 4.30pm.
These workshops are open to anyone from flash virgins (not as rude as it sounds) to experienced flash fiction writers. They will be run by National Flash Fiction Day supremo Calum Kerr and KM Elkes, who just happens to be me!
The sessions promise to be fun and informative. You won’t be expected to produce something on a par with Munro or Hemingway, but you will be expected to write something. And the best bit – because it is National Flash Fiction Day the workshops are absolutely free.
More details will emerge in due course, though I can say that my workshop will be looking at the huge importance of story openings, for both writers and readers.
There’s extra information available via Facebook. So what are you waiting for – sign up in a flash!
And don’t forget there’s also an evening of flash fiction at Foyles Bookshop in Bristol from 6pm on the same day.
