We had to cancel our NFFD 2020 live event, so we've brought our celebration online. In our Flash Feast series, we've invited some flash superstars to share some videos and posts over the course of the weekend.
In this, our final Flash Feast of National Flash Fiction Day 2020 with Nik Perring, you can find out where we pinched the name for our 'Flash Feast' series.
Here is a link to Feast if you'd like to read along.
This wraps up our weekend of celebration for NFFD 2020. Thank you so much to everyone who participated this year, and happy flash writing and reading throughout the year!
