What is Flash Fiction?

Flash fiction is a style of fiction writing generally noted for its brevity.  Most flash fiction stories are short and are often used as writing exercises to stretch a writer’s skills and imagination.  Each Flash Fiction story has a number of parameters that every author must adhere to when writing to the challenge.  These include genre, word count, time period, setting, and more.  You can learn more about the general requirements here.

Flash fiction is for everyone, regardless of skill level.  Come and join us; we are a polite and collaborative community; there are no egos, prima donnas, or attitudes here!  If you’re just starting to discover the joy of writing, FlashWriters is for you.  If you’ve been writing for decades, FlashWriters is for you too.
