BAM Festival 2023: Get Published: The BAM Flash Fiction Challenge

April 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

BAM Festival 2023

The BAM Festival 2023 presents this free writing contest with author Stephen Kozan! Mr. Kozan gets attendees started with a few writing warm-ups to help cultivate flash fiction challenge entries. One entry will be selected as the winner and receive the opportunity to craft a book, edit, and publish it with Mr. Kozan’s own publishing company!

Stephen Kozan, author of four middle-grade books, founded ReadyAimWrite Kids, LLC which focuses on books written by kids for kids through his flash fiction writing exercise during author visits. In 2019 he co-founded a nonprofit organization, Student Author Movement, which exclusively helps Title 1 students bridge the achievement gap through empowering, mentor-driven author visits.

Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Book Festival Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with BAM Festival, Inc. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
