Flash Fiction Contest #3!


If you haven’t heard, we’ve put together a short story contest where you have a chance to be featured in an upcoming anthology! You can find more information about that right here.

Those entries aren’t due until Nov 9th, so you have plenty of time to craft your masterpiece.

In the meantime, we wanted to help you guys keep your creative juices flowing with another little mini-contest today only! This is free to enter and easy to do! Here are the guidelines:

  • Topic: What a character does right after a break up.
  • Genre: Comedy.
  • Length: 150 words EXACTLY. (Challenging!)
  • No previously published works!
  • Leave a link back to your story in the comments. Leave your Twitter handle, or if you have no Twitter account, please leave an email address. Do not post the story in the comments.

Winner gets a free pdf copy of Mary Papas’s book ”Take Off Your Mask“–a collection of stories about five different women, each wearing a different “mask” in life–they pretend to be someone they’re not. But why? Nothing is as it seems in these intriguing short stories…

You have until 11:59 pm Central Time US (Chicago) Nov 1st 2014 to submit. Good luck, and may the funniest story win!
