We had a fantastic evening of Flash Fiction on December 9th in Bath at St James’ Wine Vaults. Six writers each read a selection of their stories, representing a wide range of subjects, themes and flash fiction styles.
Our novella-in-flash judge, Meg Pokrass read ‘Sparkly Plans’ a wonderful, moving flash from her novella-in-flash, Here, Where we Live, published in My Very End of the Universe, the Rose Metal Press Guide to writing a flash novella. She also read two other gems from her newest and must-read collection, The Dog Looks Happy Upside Down.

We’ve a great line-up of readers for the second Bath Flash Fiction reading this year. Our Summer event at the end of July was so much fun, and we’re sure this one will be too. We’re delighted that Meg Pokrass and Ken Elkes are reading again, and this time they’re joined by wonderful flash fiction writers, Tania Hershman, Ingrid Jendzrejewski, Freya Morris and Michael FitzGerald.
Book early to avoid disappointment. We’re looking forward to a great evening of flash.

We also like his tip to save your work under a different title if you are struggling, then “go mad on it”.
