I wanted to give a shout-out to my friend and writing colleague Pauline Masurel, who is doing the wonderful job of bringing more flash fiction to South Gloucestershhire over the autumn! She has organised a display of flash fiction books to browse and borrow which will be doing a tour of a number of libraries in South Glos this autumn. Its itinerary is as follows:
Bradley Stoke Library - 10-15 September
Patchway Library - 19-28 September
Filton Library - 29 September-9 October
Emersons Green Library - 11-23 October
Winterbourne Library - 26 October-3 November
Also, Pauline, an excellent writer of the short and very very short, will be running a couple of free, informal workshops to introduce flash fiction, share some of her own tiny and magical stories and invite participants to write their own. These will be taking place:
7-8pm on Thursday 18 October @ Emersons Green Library
6-7pm on Friday 2 November @ Winterbourne Library(Please note that the event at Winterbourne requires booking, which can be done at www.eventbrite.com)
The display and workshops are part of South Gloucestershire Council's 'Discover Festival' and further details of all events in the festival can be found at: www.southglos.gov.uk/discover.
If you are in the area, I highly recommend you checking out both the displays and Pauline's workshops, we could all do with more tiny fictions, something small and perfectly formed, in our lives, no?
