Sarah Davy, Fiction in a Flash

Sarah Davy, Fiction in a Flash


Advice, support and top tips

Flash fiction (aka micro-fiction, sudden fiction, and postcard fiction) is a very short story that might run to a couple of words, or a couple of pages. Northumberland-based author Sarah Davy looks at examples of different and unusual forms, at using titles to tell stories, and at hermit crab forms (flash with a form borrowed from something else, such as lists, recipes, etc.). Participants will work toward completing a 100-300 word piece over the course of the session, and be advised on resources about where to read and submit their work.

Sarah Davy’s short fiction is published online and in print. Her first short play, A Perfect Knot, was performed at Newcastle Theatre Royal in 2020. She was shortlisted for the Northern Writers Awards in 2020, and won the Women On The Wall flash fiction competition in 2018. In 2019-2020, she was writer in residence at Forum Books in Corbridge
