National Flash Fiction Day is on Saturday, 6 June 2020.

Here's what's happening:


For 24 hours straight starting at 00:01 BST, we’re publishing one flash every 5 to 10 minutes over at NFFD’s online journal, FlashFlood.

The Write-In

Over at NFFD’s The Write-In, we’re posting a flash prompt every hour on the hour from 00:00 – 24:00 BST on 6 June 2020. You have until 23:59 BST on Sunday, 7 June to submit your responses for a chance of publication.

2020 NFFD Anthology Launch

Join us from 7 – 10 pm BST for the 2020 NFFD virtual anthology launch. Readings from the anthology will be posted on our YouTube channel and we’ll be celebrating with chat and virtual toasts on Twitter and our dedicated Facebook event. All welcome!

Flash Feast

We had to cancel our NFFD 2020 live event, so we've brought our celebration online. In our Flash Feast series, we've invited flash superstars Michelle Elvy, Jonathan Cardew, and Nik Perring to share some videos, posts and ideas on the NFFD newsfeed over the course of the day, starting at 10:00 a.m. BST.

Also, the legendary Jude Higgins is running a NFFD workshop for NFFD from 3:00 - 6:30 p.m. for those who managed to snag a place. Contact her directly to enquire about last-minute places.

Flash Focus

Throughout the day, we’ll introduce you to a few independently-run flash fiction projects carried out by individuals and organisations across the UK. Keep an eye on our newsfeed to find out more about these brilliant projects, starting at 9:00 a.m. BST.

Beyond 6 June...

We’re coordinating with National Flash Fiction Day New Zealand to continue the celebration of flash through the month. Their full programme of events can be found on the NFFD NZ website.
