Member-Sponsored freeze frame fiction Flash Frenzy Contest
|May 15, 2014
freeze frame fiction, a new online flash fiction publication, is holding a contest here on Scribophile to accompany our first quarter submissions. Entries should be good flash fiction, pure and simple. No genre or content restrictions, 1,000 words or less.
Good flash fiction is like a freeze frame—a snapshot of a real story about real people. The word count is low, so many of the details are left to the reader to fill in, but they're there in the background. Flash fiction is not the same as a vignette, or a scene; it hints at much more. It requires a connection between the reader and the writing, and when done well, it leaves a lasting impression.
After the contest ends, all entrants not winning first prize are encouraged to submit their pieces according to freeze frame fiction's guidelines.
