“Flash-fictions are short, short stories, small but perfectly formed, packing a huge punch in a small number of words. On 16th May, all over the UK, events will be being held to celebrate these tiny gems.” National Flash-Fiction Day
Trowbridge, a town with a population of about 28,000 people, in West Wiltshire, doesn’t have a cinema (yet – we hope there will be one opening next October), doesn’t have an Arts Centre (yet – there are plans afoot!) and no longer has a professional theatre. It has many hard-working, small shops and businesses, thriving community groups, lively places of worship and of education, many lovely people and a lot of heart. It has a charming and free to enter Museum where anyone aged 16+ will be able to attend a free, Writing Flash-Fiction Workshop on National Flash-Fiction Day, 10.30 – 12.30, run by me, Trowbridge-based writer, Josephine Corcoran.
There are a lot of people working assiduously to bring more Arts events, as well as more businesses, to Trowbridge; to house an Arts Centre in the old Town Hall and to bring more vibrancy to this small town with big potential. In the meantime, Trowbridge Museum is doing a fine job of supporting community writing projects by hosting events like this. They will even provide a cup of tea and a biscuit!
Come along on May 16th to read some award-winning flash-fictions and to have a go at writing your own. There will be an opportunity to publish your work online (details at Workshop). Contact Trowbridge Museum to reserve a place.
