Lots and lots of great things are happening at our Fiction Kitchen Berlin Meetups! Great authors, exclusive focus on flash fiction stories, tips, feedback, and, well, the rest I will leave for you to discover for yourself. 🙂
Here is what you can expect:
Read Aloud Sessions: Please bring your flash stories, completed or not, to the group. This is an excellent opportunity to get feedback on your work and explore and issues that you may be having. Or maybe you just want to read your story because you’re just so damn proud of it – that’s fine too! 🙂
Focus is on quirky, strong-voiced stories that have integrity and can stand on their own. Please note that work must be a flash fiction piece – 1,000 words or less (preferably around the 600 word range).
Friendly atmosphere: Doesn’t matter how advanced you are, we are all writers facing the same issues. The real purpose of the group is to just meet others and blow off steam for a couple of hours. Come, have a drink, and see what everybody else is up to. Get some tips, and possibly even make some new friends.
Publish your story: I will be encouraging participants to submit stories to FictionKitchen.Berlin. Looking to get your flash piece published? Check out the submission guidelines here and send it on. Happy to read whatever you send!
Until next time – write safe!
