Flash fiction flashmob

Blimey, that came around quickly: the first-ever National Flash-Fiction Day is tomorrow, and I'll be touting my wordy wares in the rainy city. Starting at the Whitworth Art Gallery at 10am, me and the FlashTag boys will then wander around various venues until 5pm, dropping morsels of prose from our mouths and into the ears of an unsuspecting public. We'll be live Tweeting the whole shebang, so you can find out where we'll be ahead of time as we mosey along, and Dan Carpenter from the Bad Language collective will be recording our flash fiction flashmob to screen later on at their event at 3 Minute Theatre.

There are more details in this post I've just put up on the Manchester Literature Festival blog and you can read a really ace article about flash fiction by David Gaffney in yesterday's Guardian here.
