Our Next Meeting
Thursday 12 October 2017
Fancy scooping $20,000 for a 100 word story? Tracy will talk about the myriad of opportunities for flash fiction that now exist & how to find them. She’ll explore how flash writing can help your editing skills and even get your writing mojo back when you’re blocked. The focus will be on how decreasing word counts are the new big thing. There will some time to write your own micro story … and maybe have a go at winning that big cash prize.
Tracy Fells has won awards for both fiction and drama. Tracy, a former scientist, has had over sixty short stories published in national magazines, journals, online and in anthologies. Competition success includes Regional Winner for Canada/Europe 2017 Commonwealth Short Story Prize, short-listings for the Willesden Herald, Brighton and Fish Short Story prizes. Tracy is a fierce flasher and last November wrote a new flash story every day. She has been shortlisted for Fish Flash Fiction Prize and recently read several Flash stories at the Bath Festival.
at Goring Methodists Church Hall - start at 7:30pm
Guests welcome - £5 entry (includes free Tea or Coffee)
About us and where we meet
Members of West Sussex Writers are an eclectic bunch. We have scriptwriters, literary novelists, science fiction writers, poets, saga writers, dramatists, creative writing tutors, children's writers, journalists and biographers – among others - in our midst. Many, but not all, are published. Some have a lifetime of writing experience, others are at the start of their writing career, and a few haven't written anything yet.
Our aim is to help writers in all genres, to encourage their work and offer advice, if wanted, towards publication or gaining a wider readership. We achieve this through a mix of talks, workshops and competitions, offering something different at every meeting.
