The Aphelion Flash Fiction Contest
We run a monthly flash fiction contest in the "Fun and Games"
folder in Aphelion's forum. In the contest we post a challenge with a
specific theme and genre and participants write a flash story based on
the challenge guidelines. The contest is a great
place to hone your writing skills, meet some fellow writers, receive
some feedback, and possibly win a prize. New participants are always
welcome. Submissions for the contest
are done through the forum. Flash stories from all of our previous
contest challenges are archived in the forum as well.
The title for March's challenge is "Modern Fantasy in Green."
The contest will begin in the forum on March 2nd. Click HERE
