Flash Fiction Challenges
Every month for almost ten years, we have
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
