Some of you may have noticed an anomaly for our May reading – we usually host this event the 2nd Wednesday of May – but due to an intriguing computer/human interaction exhibit at Work Gallery that will run past 7pm, we have moved our show to 3rd week of May – the 18th.
We hope you won’t miss this coming Flash Fiction Forum, which promises to bring new voices and memorable stories.
