    Annual General Meeting

     

    This meeting provides our members the opportunity to have their say in how the group should be run and developed over the coming year. All committee roles will be up for election at this meeting.

    The buisiness of the AGM will be followed with a planned Open Mic session, including pieces from the 80th Anniversary Anthology.

    “How small can you go?” – A workshop on writing Flash and Micro Fiction with Tracy Fells

     

    Fancy scooping $20,000 for a 100 word story? Tracy will talk about the myriad of opportunities for flash fiction that now exist & how to find them. She’ll explore how flash writing can help your editing skills and even get your writing mojo back when you’re blocked. The focus will be on how decreasing word counts are the new big thing. There will some time to write your own micro story … and maybe have a go at winning that big cash prize.

     

    Tracy Fells has won awards for both fiction and drama. Tracy, a former scientist, has had over sixty short stories published in national magazines, journals, online and in anthologies. Competition success includes Regional Winner for Canada/Europe 2017 Commonwealth Short Story Prize, short-listings for the Willesden Herald, Brighton and Fish Short Story prizes. Tracy is a fierce flasher and last November wrote a new flash story every day. She has been shortlisted for Fish Flash Fiction Prize and recently read several Flash stories at the Bath Festival.
