NFFD - what I did at the weekend

Saturday was National Flash Fiction Day (NFFD) and in celebration Bristol Flash put on two rather splendid events.

The first was a Flash Fiction workshop given by Calum Kerr and Pauline Masurel where we learned what flash was and a undertook a number of interesting writing exercises. With a bit of work one of mine will see the light of day at some point.

After the workshop several of us took a long slow wander in the blazing sunshine to the Lansdown pub. Not just so we could enjoy a pint but also to share our flash fiction with a packed room.  There were 12 fantastic readers and also yours truly.

In order of appearance: Calum reading from Eat My Words,

then me – I read White noise/Black silence and Not Alone (as yet unpublished), 

after me were  Mazzy

Calum — reading his own stories this time. The final reader was 

Kevlin Henney, the organiser of this literary buffet.

It was an eclectic and entertaining bunch of stories and a great night. Would love to do it again next year.

The day also saw the release of the NFFD anthology, Eat My Words
