Hello and welcome to the first bulletin of 2013.
We are now getting underway for another great National Flash-Fiction Day to be held, this year, on 22nd June.
The website at http://
nationalflashfictionday.co.uk/ has now had a lick of paint and we have put up details of the first event of the year, a return of our micro-fiction competition. The closing date is 8th March, so get writing and please spread the word as far and wide as you can.
We also want you to start thinking about events for the day, as we want to make it even bigger and better than last year. Contact us with the details of your events and we'll list them on the website. If you have any questions or suggestions, email us here.
We already have some writers, organisations and events which we will be adding to the website soon, but if you would like to add anything, please send that over as well.
In other news, FlashBang, the crime competition, is also now live, and you can get all the details of their competition over at http://flashbangcontest.
If you have other, flash-related events you would like us to share, send those over too.
And, that's about it for now. We're just getting started, but it's time to start looking forward to June (and not just for the chance of some warm sunshine!) and thinking about how to celebrate this tiny form that brings so much joy.
So, please spread the word about our competition, our website, our facebook page and NFFD in general, and I look forward to hearing from you.
