Melbourne By Dusk is an excellent project that was started by David Witteveen and Angelica East as part of the Emerging Writer's Festival this year.
(Flash fiction is just a fancy term for really, really short stories.)
It is part of the 2011 Emerging Writer’s Festival.
WHAT IS IT?
Our core idea was to take a photo of something real in Melbourne, and then write an urban fantasy story that riffs off the picture.
Here’s what you can submit:
A PHOTO for David to write a story about.
A STORY. These can be inspired by the “seed” photos we put up. Or they can be your own stories that Angelica can then take photos for.
Stories should be 20-200 words, and urban fantasy/weird/surreal. (Include the Seed Number, if any, so we can match them up.)
YOUR OWN PHOTO/STORY combination. (Again, 20-200 word stories, urban fantasy, etc.)
SOMETHING ELSE that meets the theme - music, poetry, video, quotes, artwork…"
This was my effort - a flash poem (if that's a thing) about a photo of Flinders Street Station.
Go forth and submit your own!
