A Flash on the Horizon Monthly Flash Fiction Contest

Posted by Randi on Tuesday, April 2, 2019

What they want:
On the first of each month we will publish a new writing prompt. It could be a phrase, a photo, or something else entirely.

Submissions will be open for the first week of each month. We are looking for works of horror, science fiction, and weird fiction that reflect upon the prompt. There is no entry fee for participants but please only one entry per person. We are looking for original works that while short are still powerful. We want to be grabbed by the feels. We want to be questioned, moved, engaged, and have something to reflect about after we have read your work. Shock for the value of shock has its place, but it won't cut the mustard here. We want more.

* Check website at the first of each month to see the current prompt. Submissions for the month of April will close on April 9th.
