Big Smoke Writing Factory proudly presents FLASH BULBS – a flash fiction event as part of (inter)National Flash Fiction Day 2013!
Join us on Saturday June 22nd at Arthur’s Pub to celebrate writing that is short but not necessarily always sweet. This event is all about showcasing the best flash fiction writers Dublin has to offer.
Rich and sharp, precise and urgent – we believe flash fiction is an exciting and growing literary form. We want flash that is powerful and intimate, brief and highly charged. If you would like to read at FLASH BULBS please submit your work (published or unpublished) to us here.
We’re also excited to announce our very first Flash Fiction Competition – “The 99” is a word-perfect flash challenge. Every story entered must be EXACTLY 99 words. No more. No less.
The 99 will be judged by writer Dave Lordan, author of ‘First Book of Frags’.
Entries details can be found here . With only 99 words on the page there are very few places to hide so send us your best. It can be shocking or touching, brutal or heart wrenching – we want flash that moves the reader.
Whether you’re a total flash-enthusiast or you’ve never encountered flash fiction before in your life, this is an evening of creativity and inspiration not to be missed!
As always this event is FREE and all are welcome. So come along and bring a friend, bring two if you’ve got them! We look forward to seeing you all there!
– The Big Smoke team.
