December Flash Fiction
The Best* Flash of Aphelion 2017
*These are the pieces that the Flash
liked best of the year's submissions. Not everyone will agree with me.
Feel free to
nominate others on the forum page!
Rather than "the ten best,"
say that here are "ten of the best" of 2017.
Flash Fiction Challenges
Every month for almost
run a 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 get two weeks to write a flash story
based on 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
challenges are archived in the forum as well. Over 600
stories are included in our archive. To start reading some of these
great flash stories, check out either Index
