I took part in my first prose Flash Slam at Stokes Croft, Bristol on Friday night and brought my family along for moral support. Seven writing groups battled it out for the honour of being Flash Slam Champions 2017. We all had to write a three hundred word piece and read it aloud … in to a microphone … in front of an audience.
Our team, We Thought It Was Speed Dating, came second, beaten by the mighty Stokes Croft lot.
There is a skill to reading out and someday I may learn it, meanwhile I’ll concentrate on getting the written word right!
