National Flash Fiction Day, Bristol

Posted in NEWS & INFORMATION on June 28, 2014 by Richard Holt

I’ve just had a piece published in the National Flash Fiction Day collection Eating My Words and to celebrate (and because I’m currently in the UK with my family) I read a selection of four pieces at the NFFD event in Bristol. NFFD ( is a fabulous celebration of very short fiction and the stories read on the night were all exceptional, covering a wide range of material. If you can get a hold of the collection it is a terrific read – one of the best collections of flash fiction by selected authors that I’ve come across.
