News Flash: Flash Fiction Event Tonight!
9th February 2017
A quick last-minute announcement about a event this evening: the wonderfully named ‘Flasher’s Club’ open mic is back, and will be held at Smokey Joe’s from 7.30. Here’s the lowdown, from their blog:
Flashers’ Club is a quarterly flash fiction open mic night. Writers read original short fiction pieces between 100 and 1,000 words. There is a small entry charge, all of which goes to the charity First Story. Bring something to read, or just bring your ears!
We welcome all writers: published writers and unpublished, seasoned readers and debutants. The atmosphere is friendly, supportive and inclusive: no need to fear if you’ve never read before! We want to hear you. We like to bribe our readers with free literature (last time we had short story anthologies from indie publishers The Fiction Desk, this time litmags by Prole), so there’s a good incentive to get up behind the mic.
Previously UoG Creative Writing lecturer Lania Knight has contributed a guest reading, and at tonight’s event BA Course Leader Tyler Keevil will be doing the same. So if you’re free, come along and take part, or just support the event and enjoy the show!
