I'll be at the inaugural Flash Fiction Festival in Bath for NFFD this year but for those in Ireland, Big Smoke Writing Factory are having their customary celebration. See below for details of reading and comps.

Hello all! Our annual event for National Flash Fiction Day will take place this year on Sunday, 25th June, 3pm-6pm, in the International Bar on Wicklow St.


Bold and brief, fleeting and urgent - with National Flash Fiction Day now in its sixth year, we've embraced all things devilish! We're proud to present our #NFFD event, THE DEVIL'S IN THE DETAIL! Join us in The International Pub for our now-traditional event on Sunday 25th June to celebrate writing that is short and sharp. We hope to showcase the best flash fiction writers Dublin has to offer!

We're also thrilled to announce the return of our flash fiction competition, THE 66! This year we've made it even harder- the word-perfect flash challenge where every story entered must be EXACTLY 66 words (including title) . No more. No less. The competition is free to enter and we have a brillinat first prize lined up! The deadline for submissions is 18th June and 2 stories max can be sent (in separate emails please!)!

We're also looking for readers! If you would like to read at our event please submit your work (published or unpublished) to us! We'll select the finest 666 word (including title) stories for the event. The deadline for submissions is 11th June and 2 stories max can be sent (in separate emails please!) to!

Whether you're a total flash-enthusiast or you've never encountered flash fiction before, this is an afternoon of creativity and inspiration not to be missed! As always this event is FREE and all are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there!
