Flash Fiction Challenges
Every month for almost ten years, we have run a flash fiction
contest in the "Fun
folder in Aphelion's forum. In the contest, we post a challenge with a
specific theme and participants get two weeks to write a flash story
the challenge guidelines. Then the members vote of the stories, rating
them in six different categories. It's a great
place to hone your writing skills, meet some fellow writers, receive
some feedback, and possibly win a prize, or at least, bragging rights.
New participants are always
welcome. Submissions for the contest
are done through the forum. Just click 'Flash Challenge' button in the
Navbar link on the left side of this screen to see what we're up to
Flash stories from all of our previous
contest challenges are archived in the forum as well. Over 600 stories
are included in our archive. To start reading some of these great flash
