The Flash fiction award is a creativity offshoot that has been established to cater for the interest of unpublished writers across the continent and to garner publicity for the art of flash fiction writing and the writers.

In today’s fast paced world where communication is right at our fingertips through smart devices; phones, tablets and the likes, consumers prefer to consume information on-the- go and in bite sized chunks.
