Hello everyone,

Hope you're having a nice, if wet, summer, and that you enjoyed some of the International Short Story Day activities that took place yesterday.
This is just a quick message to remind you that 22nd June is National Flash-Fiction Day in New Zealand. All the info about what's going on is online at so tune in and see what's going on.
To celebrate, we're launching another Write-In. This will start to coincide with the start of the 22nd in NZ (about 45 mins at time of writing) and finish at midnight on the 22nd here (about 35 hours and 45 mins...)
How this will work is that we will provide a prompt for you, over at the The Write-in ( ) which will go live at 1pm BST and we will be accepting submissions of flash-fictions on that theme (max word count of 500, no limits on style or genre) until it closes at midnight tomorrow. Submissions outside that time will not be considered. 
So, get your brains back in gear, and get ready. Oh, and please spread the word. We'd love as many stories as possible, from all over the globe!
Let's do that antipodean flash thing!

Did you know that 22nd June (next Friday for those not paying attention) is National Flash-Fiction Day in New Zealand? We thought it was far too good an opportunity to pass up, so we're going to hold an online writing event to celebrate.

At midnight on the 22nd, NZ time (1pm on the 21st here in the UK), we shall release a prompt to inspire you to write a flash-fiction. You will then have 35 hours, (until the end of 22nd here in the UK) to write something and submit it for us to publish on a special blog.

And, we hope, this global write-in will be just the first of many as we start to look forward to next year's INTERnational Flash-Fiction Day!!

(PS. If anyone wants to help out with administering this, please drop me a line through the usual ways... Thank you!)
