Bath Flash Fiction Anthology Giveaway!

March 20, 2017

Congratulations to Bath Flash Fiction on their first anthology: To Carry Her Home: Bath Flash Fiction, Volume One! To celebrate flash from the UK and around the world, SmokeLong Quarterly is giving away 5 copies of the Bath Flash Fiction anthology. Details on how to win below.

If you write micro fiction, you’ve probably come across the Bath Flash Fiction Award. Bath Flash Fiction also hosts a novella-in-flash competition alongside its rolling flash contest and anthologies. The first anthology–To Carry Her Home: Bath Flash Fiction, Volume One— includes 145 stories by writers from eleven countries.

Robert Vaughan, one of 2016 judges, had this to say about the anthology:

“unique landscapes, with unusual words, startling sentence fragments and odd characters…truly international with heartfelt prose, playful poetics and taking literary risks”

But that’s not all. Bath Flash Fiction is also organizing the Bath Flash Fiction Festival to be held in Bath on June 24-25, 2017. This is the first literary festival in the UK to focus purely on flash fiction, so we wish Bath Flash much success! If you live in the UK, have a look.

How to win the Bath Flash Fiction anthology: Tweet us (@SmokeLong) a link to a killer flash fiction story (fewer than 1000 words) by an author NOT from your own country–all you writers from Moldavia have a distinct advantage. Be sure to tell us where you’re from, where the author is from, and why you love the story.

Prefer Instagram to Twitter? Follow SmokeLong Quarterly on Instagram and share a picture of the story, yourself reading the story, etc. and give us the same information as above.

Winners will be chosen randomly on April 20, so you have a month to tweet as often as you like.
