It's just under five weeks until this round of the Bath Flash Fiction Award ends on June 12th. Writer, editor, manuscript assessor and director of National Flash Fiction Day, New Zealand, Michelle Elvy, who is based in New Zealand but has been sailing the coast of East Africa this year, will judge a fifty-strong long list. A feature of our contest is the quick turnaround and we expect results to be out by the end of June.
We are delighted to welcome renowned flash fiction writers and tutors, Robert Vaughan and Kathy Fish who are based in the United States, as our judges for the next two rounds of the Award. Robert will judge the round that begins at the end of June and ends in mid October, this year. Kathy will judge the following award that is likely to begin at the end of October and finish in February, 2017.
Kathy and Robert's collaborative book of flash fictions. Rift is reviewed here by Al Kratz who won second prize in the last round of the competition judged by UK based flash fiction writer and poet Tania Hershman.
Do buy their book. It's wonderful and very instructive. More exciting news about our judges for the final two contests in 2017 coming soon.
