Filed under: networking,Writing competition or opportunity — Annie Evett @ 10:49 pm

Thanks to Calam Kerr for writing this round up of what is happening on Wed 16th of May – our Flash Fiction Day.

  • Then, at midnight, the FlashFlood journal goes live, with stories appearing regularly throughout the 24 hours of NFFD. Submissions don’t close until midnight tomorrow, so do please send in your pieces and encourage people to do the same. Details: http://flashfloodjournal.blogspot.co.uk/
  • Check out ether books – http://www.etherbooks.com/  ( download the iphone/ ipad app for free)  will be publishing the winning submissions from my competition – Twisted Tales in a genre specifically set up for Raging Aardvark Publishing.  All of the stories will be available for free download from the app on the 16th.
  • These amazing stories  will also appear on the Raging Aardvark website – for 24 hours only.
    A ebook will be available by the end of the month with the entire Anthology – again – for free!
  • At exclusive spots ( cafes and the like) around the globe, Photocopier Press will be handing out its special edition for Flash Fiction Day.
  • At 11am the Write-In will start. This will provide a huge number of prompts for you to write an instant flash and see it appear on the blog. It will run until 3pm and no submissions will be accepted after that. We could still use some more prompts, so if you have a list of interesting words, phrases, titles, lyrics or whatever, do please send them over. Details: http://thewrite-in.blogspot.co.uk/
  • And then, we reach the evening. The main launch event will be occurring in Southampton Central Library from 6.30/7.00pm until about 9.00 and featuring the launch of Jawbreakers along with readings from myself, Vanessa Gebbie, Holly Howitt, Sara Crowley, Gail Aldwin, Natalie Bowers, Tim Stephenson and more (along with some of videos if we get it working!) Do please come along if you can, it’s entirely free! https://www.facebook.com/events/379325198752054/ and http://www.nationalflashfictionday.co.uk/southwest.html
And that’s pretty much it. Things will be happening over the next day on the blog (http://nationalflashfictionday.blogspot.com/), website (http://www.nationalflashfictionday.co.uk), Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/nationalflashfictionday) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/#!/nationalflashfd), so stay tuned and spread the word.
And here goes National Flash-Fiction Day 2012!!
