A selection of the stories will be published online in the lead up to the 2021 Gunning Arts Festival and some will be selected to be performed and published in a booklet to be printed as part of the Festival.

Full details on the project, the entry form and submission process submit stories can be found at: www.gunningartsfestival.com/activities/flashwrite-project/

To support community members, two free writing workshops will be run to help in the development of short stories. These will be led by local Gunning author Greg Baines and will help to guide people through the short story form, editing process and provide some personal feedback.

Submissions are welcome any time until 8 February 2021 and can be lodged electronically or in hardcopy.
