On Wednesday it’s the first ever National Flash Fiction Day, and Manchester will be joining in with a celebration of short fiction across the City. With the help of Arts Council funding, four #flashtag writers will descend upon several of the City’s cultural institutions to promote and perform short fiction. And anyone can watch it for free.
I’ll be trying to catch them at the People’s History Museum, but they’re appearing at 26 other venues and public spaces, including the Royal Exchange Theatre, Waterstones in the Arndale Centre. City Library and Eighth Day vegetarian cafe.
#flashtag will be posting times and venues for their flash fiction performances on the flashtag blog, and you can also follow them around Manchester on twitter: @flashtagmcr
