Meg Pokrass's headshot

I'm an internationally published flash fiction author of six flash fiction collections, two novellas-in-flash, and two collections of prose poetry. My work has been published in hundreds of print and online literary journals and anthologies, most notably three Norton anthologies of flash fiction. I enjoy collaborating with visual artists, musicians and filmmakers on creative projects. I’m the Flash Fiction Columnist for Mslexia Magazine, Founding Editor of Best Microfiction, an award-winning yearly anthology series, and Festival Curator for Flash Fiction Festival, UK.  I have appeared at literary festivals and events in the UK and in America. I work as a mentor and private flash fiction/flash memoir editor and offer regular online workshops through my own website. Recently, I primarily enjoy teaching workshops through Zoom and online venues, but will consider in-person appearances.
