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 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. Over 500 stories are included in our archive. To start reading some of these great flash stories, check out either Index 1 or Index 2.

The title for February's challenge was "Still Among Us?" The contest started in the forum on February 4th.  Visit our forums and check it out.
