Summer Flash Fiction Contest

Heat Lightning: Flash Fiction

Having spent most of my life in the Northeast, I usually passed my summer nights on a front porch with a cold drink and a good book. Now that I live in San Francisco, the “front porch” has been replaced by a neighborhood bar stool and the book is usually replaced by my IPhone; there is nothing I love more than catching up on the latest literary happenings on the web, be it on Twitter, Facebook or the blogosphere.

This past April, we asked you to share some spring Haiku over Twitter. Now, in the spirit of summer, we’re asking you to share your best flash fiction with our Facebook community.

Here are the specifics:

  • You must like us on Facebook and post your entry on our Facebook page anytime from now through 11:59pm EST July 31 August 31. (We’ve extended the deadline!) You can enter more than once.
  • Your piece should not exceed 420 characters 350 words (simply post it as a comment to one of our Facebook posts if you have trouble posting it directly on our wall).
  • The winning entry will be announced and published on our site.

And that’s it. Got questions or comments? Email Maggie at mglover@failbetter.com. Looking forward to reading your work!
