Christmas Fireworks

What better way to end the year than with some flash fiction fun?

Come and join us at Flash Flood for an Advent Calendar full of free writing prompts designed to give you a great head start when submissions open in 2019 for the National Flash Fiction Day Anthology and Microfiction Content , not to mention Flash Flood itself.

The first prompt has been posted here.

If you'd like to share your work or just have a chat about writing, feel free to join our private Facebook group.

Happy Writing!



Well, I've been hinting and nudging to let you know that something new and special was on its way for National Flash-Fiction Day, and with exactly ONE WEEK TO GO, here it is!

Called FlashFlood, and inspired by the recent efforts of The 24 Project, we are launching our own pop-up journal for the day.

The rules are simple (and laid out here: We're looking for your very very best flash-fictions. 500 words is the limit and we are not limiting ourselves to any genre, style or perspective. Nor are we limiting ourselves geographically, so this is open World-Wide!

There are seven editors, including myself, taking a day of the 'countdown week' each, and submissions will close at midnight on 15th/16th May, with the first story being posted simultaneously. We will then post your stories regularly throughout the 24 hours of National Flash-Fiction Day.

So, get writing, get sending, and let us have your flashes, we want to fill the day with your fictions. We want many, we want loads, we want a FlashFlood!!
