Do you write flash fiction? Lucky you! Today is National Flash Fiction Day (U.K.)! In honor of the holiday to celebrate writing small, I’ve compiled a round-up of helpful links.
What is Flash Fiction? Though the definition varies according to publisher, “Flash What? A Quick Look at Flash Fiction,” by Jason Gurley and posted on the Writing-World website provides a thorough explanation.
Need a support group to crit and help shape your flash? Try an online writing group. In the past, I participated in the FlashXer group on yahoo. The group operates through email, and shares exercises, critiques, techniques, and market information. You can learn more about the group, and how to join by visiting the FlashXer information page.
If you need places to submit those tiny stories once you’ve completed them, Flash Fiction Chronicles has an extensive list, organized by word count.
