We’re starting out the New Year early, with an open call for our first (and hopefully annual) flash fiction contest to be awarded in January 2018: Show Us Your Short-Shorts Editors’ Prize — details here.
To get in the spirit of flash, short-shorts, micro fiction—whichever term suits you—take a look at a master of flash, Lydia Davis.
Lydia Davis’s Very Short Stories (The Atlantic)
Long Story Short: Lydia Davis’s radical fiction. (The New Yorker)
“The Visitor” by Lydia Davis (The Masters Review)
Lydia Davis, Art of Fiction No. 227 (The Paris Review)
And, of course, the collection itself.
We look forward to reading your entries!
