Nothing to see here yet - we only just started last night, but we will be posting news as and when it happens.


We are a charity, run by volunteers, and the costs of putting on the festival come entirely from donations, sponsors and flash fiction entry fees, which also pays for the prizes.

If you enjoy what we are doing and would like to see it continue, please consider making a donation if you can, no matter how small.
