NFFD - Bulletin 10

Hello again,

Well, this will be the last bulletin before the big day, which is just TWO DAYS away!!

This is the time for a roundup of all the things happening on Wednesday that you can still help out and get involved with. (All times are given in BST.)

  • 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:
  • 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:
  • 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! and

And that's pretty much it. Things will be happening over the next day on the blog (, website (, Facebook ( and Twitter (!/nationalflashfd), so stay tuned and spread the word. 

And here goes National Flash-Fiction Day 2012!!

All the best for the day,
Calum Kerr
