Flash Fiction Challenge…

All right then! Just back from teaching a course in Flash Fiction and it was so productive and interesting as a tool in developing as a writer that I thought it might be fun (and helpful) to run a challenge..

Here’s how it works –

The challenge is open to all

I’ll post a prompt and a word limit every two days, participants can then post their stories (1 per person per prompt!) in the comments section

Feel free to comment on the stories and offer CONSTRUCTIVE and helpful feedback

At the end, I’ll choose 5 writers to publish their pieces here on my site (and will promote them like crazy!)

You in??
