At the end of May, my flash fiction Upon Discovering that Cows Can Swim was published by Jellyfish Review, who are one of my dream literary journals. The work they publish is always so spot on, so it’s an absolute honour to be a part of their family. Thank you to everyone who has already read this flash and sent me such kind words in response.

There’s Something Macrocosmic About All of This
Friday 1st June officially marked the publication of my new flash fiction pamphlet from V-Press! I’m thrilled that the pamphlet is now out there for everyone to read. So much hard work has gone into it, and I want to thank V-Press for all of their advice, support, and work to make this pamphlet the best it can be.
The short fiction in There’s Something Macrocosmic About All of This by Santino Prinzi is very human and very heart-provoking.
“Hilarious, playful, profound and fierce, these stories ring with wonder at the messy world of sex and love. Prinzi’s fiction is addictive because of their unflinching sensuality and sharp attention to emotional detail.” Meg Pokrass
“In There’s Something Macrocosmic About All of This, Santino Prinzi looks for the big truths in everyday moments. From coming out to falling out, each of these stories is a nuanced study of human nature – full of insight and wit.” Christopher Allen
Ripening: National Flash-Fiction Day Anthology 2018
This year’s National Flash Fiction Day Anthology is very close to being sent to print! I love the cover design, but I love the flash fiction that Alison Powell and I have selected more! We really can’t wait to share this anthology with all of you.
We’ll be launching the anthology this year on the evening of National Flash Fiction Day, Saturday 16th June, at Bedminster Library in Bristol with a reading! I’ll be reading my flash, along with Alison Powell, Calum Kerr, Diane Simmons, F J Morris, Gemma Govier, Grace Palmer, Ingrid Jendrzejewski, Jude Higgins, Judy Darley, K M Elkes, Kevlin Henney, and Sal Page.
My flash in the anthology is very dear to me. It’s called Nonni, which is Italian for grandparents, and is in loving memory of my nonno who sadly passed away in April this year.
You can find out more about the launch event and other National Flash Fiction Day activities, including FREE workshops, by visiting their website HERE.
More news about the publication date and where you can buy the anthology from coming soon.
