We are excited to be launching our two latest anthologies this week, on Saturday 19th January at St James Wine Vaults, in Bath, 7.30 pm – 10.00 pm. It’s going to be a fun and pacy evening with readings of micro fictions (around 2 mins reading time each) from Flash Fiction Festival Two by writers who came to the second Flash Fiction Festival in Bristol last July in the first half of the evening and after a break for chats, drinks, cake and book buying, readings from some of the winning, shortlisted and longlisted writers who are published in Bath Flash Fiction Vol Three, Things Left And Found By The Side Of The Road.
Here’s our list of fabulous flashers, some local and others travelling from all over the UK to be with us. Reading from Flash Fiction Festival Two: Carrie Etter; Alison Woodhouse; Matt Thorpe Coles; Jeanette Sheppard; Jude Higgins; Andrea Harman; John Wheway; Grace Palmer; Philip Webb Gregg, Dave Alcock, Alison Powell and Santino Prinzi. Many of these flash fictions were prompted by workshops at the festival.
And in the second half, the launch of Things Left and Found At The Side Of The Road, we’re thrilled to begin with all-the-way-from Brighton, Jo Gatford, who wrote the title story and who won first prize in February 2018. She’s followed by K M Elkes who won first prize in the June 2018 Award; Ingrid Jendrzejewski, a former first prize winner, also commended in June 2018; 2018, Conor Haughton, second prize in the June Award; Rosamund Davies; Steve Partridge; Diane Simmons; Steven John,Bronwen Griffith; Thomas Malloch; Gail Anderson and lastly, Tim Craig, third prize winner in the June round.
We’ll have special cake, wine and nibbles a thirty minute break in between readings plus a late bar. All the Bath Flash Fiction Anthologies will be for sale plus other flash fiction books from NFFD and by some of our authors. Let us know asap if you are in the area and would like to come. We might be able to squeeze you in.
