Last year we held the inaugural festival for writers and it was such a success that over 90% of the attendees rated it a 9 or a 10! So now we are doing it again - and you can benefit.

If you are an aspiring writer, an emerging writer, or an established writer, then please do pay attention, because unlike the usual readers & writers festivals, this one is specifically designed for writers (who, let's face it are readers too), to mix with other writers and to hone their craft. It's a weekend of top-notch professional development for writers. Whether you write genre, literary fiction, non-fiction or poetry, we will cover it all.

Why Flash Fiction?

Flash fiction is about saying less with more.

It's about honing your skills. A vehicle to develop your craft.

For most definitions, it is a narrative story under either 2,000 words, 1,000 words, or for our purposes for this weekend a maximum of 500 words. It goes by many names: microfiction, microstories, short-shorts, very short stories, sudden fiction, postcard fiction, and nano-fiction, among others.

The Program

When you come to this weekend, you will emerge yourself in a rich environment of writers' craft and surround yourself with professional writers, some of whom (annoyingly) might be better than you! But that's actually the best part if you think about it.

Our writing journeys are long and often lonely roads, and we can all learn from those who have gone before us. Especially from those who are wildly succeeding.

The art & craft of writing

You will hear from an array of excellent writers, who will each share their journeys and nuggets of wisdom through short, half-hour keynotes. (We call them Flash Keynotes.

Then, you will be able to choose between a number of practical workshops, which will all include opportunities to write, and apply what you have learned along the way.

Entertainment will be provided via our Saturday night show, called "Tales After Dark", which is a regular event we hold in Canberra. It's about, "Storytelling for grownups". (Flash fiction pieces are read aloud by our talented actors, and we have a very special guest act too. It will be hugely popular. But we only have room for 60 people for the evening show, so book early for that one, if you want to get a seat. It's bound to sell out.

This weekend will turbocharge your writing in 2019.
