This Friday (17th November) at 6pm, Peter Blair will be giving a talk on flash fiction at Storyhouse, as part of the Chester Literature Festival.
Every year, Chester Literature Festival welcomes lecturers from the University of Chester who share their expertise in a series of popular free talks.
This illustrated talk will introduce the meteoric rise of the contemporary flash, its many varieties, and the myriad names by which it is known. It will consider definitions of flash fiction, including identification by word count and formal characteristics. And it will explore humorous examples to illuminate how little stories can resonate long after their last words.
The event is free, but you’ll need to book online:
