Bulletin 15/06/2013

Hello everyone,

Well, we are now one week away from the day! Hasn't it come around quickly.

Sorry that the bulletins have been a little thin this year, there is a really good excuse, and I'll tell you what it is when I think of it.

Anyway, a quick roundup as we go into the final week.

Once more we are running the FlashFlood journal. It's looking for your stories - up to 3 stories, up to 500 words each - and they will all appear on the site on NFFD itself. We want to make it a full day, so please send us in your work. Details and submission guidelines are over at

During the week we will also be running a series of posts about flash-fiction, with accompanying stories, over on the NFFD blog ( Do please go and have a read, and we have a few spots left so if you'd like to write something for us, please get in touch.

I also have an inkling of a plan for something online on the day itself. If you might be available to help out next Saturday, please do get in touch about that too!

What else? Well, the anthology has gone to print and will be here in time for the day. Copies will be on sale at the Bristol events (more below on that) and are currently available to pre-order from the website at

If you can't wait that long, of if you find paper to be just too passé then you can now buy the ebook from Amazon at (if you are outside the UK, just change the to something more relevant...)

We have also added a shop to the website so you can easily find your flash-fix from our authors' books,. our anthologies, or our beautiful short-story cards. That's up at

And then, most importantly, we have events that are happening on the day. They are quite nicely spread out - Bristol, Cardiff, Dublin, Edinburgh, Hartlepool and Shrewsbury. If you have an event that we haven't yet listed, please let us know. If you already have, and we've missed the email, please poke us with a stick.

I will be appearing at the Bristol events, with fresh copies of Scraps, leading a workshop with Tania Hershman and then reading in the evening with a huge range of wonderful writers. Do come along if you can. More details at

I'm sure there are more things I should tell you, but that's enough to go on with, don't you think?

If you have anything we've missed, please drop us a line and we'll spread the word.

And so, until next week, happy flashing!
All the best

Director, National Flash-Fiction Day
