Today saw the launch of the latest project from the FlashTag writing collective, of which I make up a fifth. After running a successful short-short story competition and popular spoken word event for Chorlton Arts Festival last year, they're letting us loose again. Full competition details can be found here and details of the Manchester-based FlashTag collective can be found here. The closing date is Friday 27 April, and we'll announce the shortlist on Friday 11 May, with the top three stories revealed at a glittering awards ceremony on Wednesday 23 May, during the festival. Last year, the golden statue was raised above the head of one Socrates Adams, who's just published his first novel. We feel honoured!
If you want a copy of our official press release or high-res images or intellectual soundbites or signed photographs, I'm your woman. The press contact details are here. Similarly, if you want to send us money or cake or provide prizes for the competition winners, we'd love to hear from you.
