Our next Short Short Story Slam takes place in Lancaster as part of Litfest, on Saturday October 18, and we are open for applications. Fighter writers: do you feel the passion stirring in your fingers? Do you fancy having a stab in our inkthirsty battlecage? Do you like cold, hard cash and all you can exchange it for in shops?
All you need to fight are three stories of no more than 200 words each and the guile to read them out in front of a voting audience. The slam is brutal, but the prestige is huge. Take a look at our mega important rules on www.shortshortstoryslam.co.uk and then drop us an email on flashtagmcr[at]gmail.com. It’s never too late to apply – but there are only 12 spaces available so get in there quick.
October 18th, 8pm, Lancaster. The battle is on!
