Happy National Flash-Fiction Day 2017!

Hello everyone,

Yes, it's here again. This is the sixth National Flash-Fiction Day (and they said it wouldn't last). 

As ever, there are a number of events happening all over the UK and beyond, details of which you can read on our website at

Earlier in the year, we ran our micro-fiction competition, and you can read the winning stories at

We also took submissions for our anthology, Sleep is a Beautiful Colour, which you can now buy online at Amazon in both paperback and kindle versions. The book also includes all the competition winners, as well as wonderful stories from some of the best flash-fictioneers in the world. 

The anthology will also be on sale at the launch, this evening, as part of the UK's first ever Flash-Fiction Literary Festival, in Bath. Details about that are online at

And, last but not even a little bit least, we are once again flooding the internet with flash-fiction with our FlashFlood. You can read the stories as they appear on our blog ( but also through our Facebook and Twitter feeds. And, don't worry, the stories will remain on the blog after tomorrow, along with over 1000 stories from previous issues.

Once again, it will be a massive day to celebrate the smallest prose fictions, and thanks must go to all who help organise the day, and all of you for your support in writing and reading and taking part in the day.

Special thanks to my co-Director Tino Prinzi, without whom the day wouldn't have happened. 

And that's enough of me. The Flood is now flooding, the day is unfolding before you. So go forth and Flash!
