Presented in association with Writing WA

In the lead-up to this year's Writers' Weekend we put a call out to young writers to encourage them to write and submit a piece of flash fiction. This session brings the award-winners together for an afternoon of compelling, fresh flash fiction, facilitated by Night Parrot Press editor Laura Keenan.

The call for submissions of Flash Fiction and Video Art is currently open, with submissions closing early Jan. Encourage a young person in your life to create something this summer break, and see them featured at this event.
Read more about the Call to Young Artists here.
