Cork International Short Story Festival in Cork, Ireland, in September. This is a festival you want to sell anything to make sure you can go to - it's heaven for short story writers, and not just the events but the after-parties where writers mingle with readers and listeners are a huge part of the attraction. So, come flash with me... or just come and be there! (Booking's not open yet, I believe, but soon...)
Flash Fic News 2
National Flash Fiction Day anthology - and the anthology wants your stories too. Here are the guidelines:
We are looking for flash-fictions of between 150 and 500 words (not including the title) from UK writers only.
They can be in any style or genre but we want you to use only a single word for the title and this word should be the prompt for the piece or indicative of the story's theme.
You may submit a maximum of two pieces.
Stories should be emailed as .doc, .docx or .rtf attachments. Please put your name, the title of the submission and your address (for proof of UK residence) into the body of the email.
Email your entries to nffdanthology AT gmail DOT com.
Stories should be previously un-published (except maybe on a blog for the purposes of workshopping) and no simultaneous submissions, please.
The deadline for submissions is 23.59 on Tuesday 10th April. Any submissions received after that time will not be considered.
If you are included in the anthology you will receive a free copy of the e-book edition plus a chance to buy a copy of the physical edition at a greatly reduced price.
