National Flash Fiction Day was founded in 2011 to celebrate all that is exciting and bold and, above all, brief in the world of flash-fiction.

National Flash Fiction Day aims to:

  • Promote flash fiction and flash fiction writers in the UK and beyond
  • Inspire new shortform writing
  • Encourage new writers and writers of other forms to explore flash fiction
  • Provide a positive, encouraging, inclusive community for flash fiction writers and readers around the globe

Now in its eighth year, National Flash Fiction Day was founded by Calum Kerr, and is currently run by Santino Prinzi, Ingrid Jendrzejewski and Diane Simmons.
