    We present some of the best Flash Fiction, read by a number of authors: self-contained stories that take only a few minutes.

    An evening of readings introduced by Jude Higgins, founder of the international Bath Flash Fiction Awards and the short-short fiction press. There will be readings from Jude and four other local, widely published writers of the form: Judy Darley, KM Elkes, Alison Woodhouse, John Wheway.

    Flash Fiction is self-contained stories that take only a few minutes. There will be a wide variety of styles and subject matter, all within a 500 word or less format.

    It will be fun, pacy, get you thinking and maybe wanting to write something yourself.
