Quick Fictions event at York Literature Festival

Quick Fictions logo

Professor Nicholas Royle, Sussex academic and Myriad author (Quilt), presents an evening of Quick Fictions at York St John University, as part of York Literature Festival.

Quick Fictions looks at the writing of our time. Is it possible to combine inventive and memorable ideas in the age of the short attention span? Recent years have seen a huge growth in ‘flash fiction’ and stories that can be consumed quickly. Having begun life as a regular flash fiction event at the University of Sussex, curated by Nicholas Royle, Quick Fictions has since been hosted at universities and literary festivals around the UK and is now available as an innovative app.

Quick Fictions invites your contributions! Approximately twenty of the pieces submitted will be selected and the authors will be asked to read their stories on the night. Selected work will appear on the Quick Fictions app. Write a short piece (300 words maximum) and email it (including full name and contact details) to [email protected] by 5pm on Friday 13th March 2015 to be considered. There is no submission fee.
