Grey Matter Press, providers of fiction that lurks in the darkest recesses of our imaginations, have launched Flash Masters a monthly flash fiction competition that will take place at the end of each month. As Grey Matter describe:
The Grey Matter Press FLASH MASTERS Flash Fiction Contest seeks to celebrate and award the exceptional creativity of both current and up-and-coming authors of dark fiction. FLASH MASTERS allows you to share your talent for short, concise storytelling with the horror-loving community. FLASH MASTERS will be held monthly during the last week of the month right here at the Grey Matter Press website, and winners will receive prizes from Grey Matter Press. Each month a FLASH MASTERS Flash Fiction prompt will be provided to inspire your creativity. While the prompts will change month-to-month, there will always be one consistent element in FLASH MASTERS. And that will be that at least one participant will win.
You can find the details for this month’s competition here.
In the UK, right now, is National Flash Fiction Day. Later today, sometime between 3-4pm (GMT), my flash ‘Sunrise’ nestled amongst the work of 143 other writers. The day celebrates flash fiction by releasing over 24 hours every 10 minutes a new story.
