The buzz is certainly humming on the social networking lines about (Inter) National Flash Fiction Day. There are a number of competitions you can enter your flash to to be part of this celebration. I’ve collated a few below – so go on – dust off those super short stories you’ve hidden away – spruce them up a bit, slap some lipstick on it and take that pig for a walk! ( thanks for the quote, Joseph McClendon III)
They are all free to enter and offer successful submissions, boundless fame, glory and admiration from all who read your work in print. ( thats code for – we do it for the love.. not the money.. ’cause at the moment, there ‘aint none!)
But hurry – submissions close within days for some…
Once Upon a Time Writing Contest Fractured fairy tales up to 350 words
