Reminder about National Flash Fiction Day:

National Flash Fiction Day is a writing initiative that began in 2012 and attracts more than 300 entries a year. The last date for entering the competition is 30 April. The first prize is $1000. This year’s judges are James Norcliffe and Elizabeth Smither.

Prize-givings and readings of short-listed and winning stories will take place at simultaneous events in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch on the shortest day of the year (in the Southern Hemisphere) —  June 22nd – ‘because ‘life is short, and so is some of the best fiction,’ from 6–8pm.

Northland prize giving and readings will take place at Kings Theatre Creative in Kawakawa – day and time to be advised.
