(inter)National Flash Fiction Day

So this year is going to be the first celebration of Flash Fiction Day, on May 16th! I’m hoping that I’ll be able to get the stories out in the venues on the 16th to tie in with this

I’ve also agreed to distribute some copies of a pamphlet of flash fiction being put together at this blog here! So take a look and get involved. Chris has agreed to post about CAKE, so if your stories are too long for flash fiction (under 1000 words) then why not submit to CAKE, and similarly if they’re too short for us, take a look over there! You can find out more about flash fiction day right here.

Don’t forget, the deadline for submitting to the first issue of CAKE is NEXT MONDAY 30th APRIL!

Round 1 Submissions

Welcome to CAKE.shortandsweet, friends and writers.

We are very excited to announce the official opening of round one submissions for the CAKE publication. The deadline is Monday 30th April so you have just over a week to get those stories down on paper. If you’re thinking about entering, take a moment to read our about page which will hopefully explain what we’re doing here. Once you’re ready, take a look at the submissions page, which has instructions for sending us your work.

Two lovely venues have already agreed to host your stories, and the more news of this spreads, the more will want to join in. So tell all your friends, badger them into sitting down at their computers and pening that story they’ve always meant to. Find us on facebook, follow us on twitter, and help us to help you get published!

…and please bear with us, this blog is still under construction.
