24 SEPT 6.30pm - Flash Fiction

8.00

Flash Fiction/ Non-fiction - a style of writing in which stories are extremely short and often consist of less than 300 words.

Join us for a fun filled night of fast stories at 6.30pm on Tuesday 24 September at Riverbend Books, as poet Anna Jacobson and writer Amanda O'Callaghan chat about their work and teach us how they tell tales in very few words.

Amanda and Anna will read us some of their work, discuss their process of flash fiction/non-fiction and poetry, and invite audience members to read their own concise stories. If you think you can tell a tale in four sentences or less, this is the event for you! We’d love you to bring along and share your favourite piece of flash fiction - either something you’ve written, or something you’ve read!


Be sure to book in for what promises to be a fun filled night!
