Poetry Shelf noticeboard: National Poetry Day update


National Flash Fiction Day / 22 June 2020


The NFFD 2020 competition is still open for entries!

And we are hosting free online discussion groups this month…


As New Zealand moves to be a safer place with Covid-19 updates coming daily, NFFD brings you online roundtable discussions to brush up your flash and keep your energy flowing during these challenging times.

Free of charge and in a place near you, with past winners and judges participating as well, including Emma Neale, Tracey Slaughter, Patrick Pink, Tim Jones, Gail Ingram, Rachel Smith and more.

If you are feeling isolated or stranded with your writing, you may turn to small fictions. Short bursts of inspiration may connect us all. Give it a go – see how flash may be therapeutic, comforting and inspiring…

Join a ZOOM roundtable discussion! See the NFFD Events page for more information.

How to enter the 2020 competition here.


And tune into Radio New Zealand this Sunday as Tracey Slaughter speaks with Lynn Freeman on Standing Room Only.
