Northland will celebrate National Flash Fiction Day at Kings Theatre Creative, Kawakawa, on Sunday 24 June from 1pm.

Flash fiction writer, micro writer, poet, and this year’s micro madness judge, Jac Jenkins, will present a workshop called Straddling the Border between Poetry and Flash Fiction. Whether you write poetry or flash, whether you are experienced or new to writing, this hands-on workshop will help you reimagine the limits of form.

The workshop will be followed by afternoon tea and then an open mic for flash fiction readings. Cost is $10 for the workshop, payable at the door.

Bio:
Jac Jenkins writes poetry, flash and micro-fiction. She has recently also experimented with creative non-fiction, enjoying the lyric essay and non-fiction short for their genre-crossing nature. Jac’s work can be found in Turbine, the anthology Penguin Days, and Flash Frontier: An Adventure in Short Fiction.

One of her flashes will appear in Bonsai: The Big Book of Small Stories (CUP, 2018) and her 2017 micro ‘Stigmeology’ was a finalist for Best Small Fictions 2018. She won the Northland Regional Prize of the National Flash Fiction Day Competition three years running and is a past winner of the takahē Poetry Competition.

She likes to think she lives a quiet rural life despite having spent a recent year exploring her capabilities in the Northern Territory of Australia and another participating in Victoria University of Wellington’s MA in Creative Writing. She lives with her partner on a farm in the Far North.
