Festive Flash Fiction Wanted!

Can you tell a festive story in just 3 minutes? Want to have your fiction played on the radio? This Christmas, I’m once again looking for festive flash fiction from around the world for inclusion on Hannah’s Bookshelf (my weekly radio show on North Manchester FM).

On Saturday 18th December, I’ll be playing a selection of my favourite 3 Minute Santas on the show (broadcast on FM and on digital). Want to be part of it? Submit a recording of your seasonal story (maximum 3 minutes) by midnight on Monday 6th December.

All genres welcome – be they cosy, romantic, scary or sad. But ease off the swears – stories have to be radio friendly! The only rules are that the story must be your own original work, it must last a maximum of 3 minutes. Submissions are welcome from anywhere in the world, but do need to be in English for broadcast. And multiple submissions are allowed.

To submit a story, all you need is a microphone and an internet connection. When you’re ready to record your submission, click the ‘Start Recording’ below. You’ll have chance to review your recording before you submit it. Don’t forget include your name and email address in your submission so we can contact you.

Submissions are now closed for this year’s 3 Minute Santas. Keep an eye on my Twitter and Facebook for upcoming opportunities to be on the show.
