There is no fee to enter the competition.


The Judges

The competition will be judged  by an international panel that includes Robert Vaughan (USA), Leah McMenamin (New Zealand), Marcus Speh (Germany) and Nuala Ni Chonchúir (Ireland). See the Judges page for more.


The Organizers
The organizers represent various points on the globe, and work across timezones and font styles to bring this flash mob event to you. Christopher Allen does all that he does from Munich, Germany but edits for the daily literary ezine Metazen, which is actually run from Canada. Linda Simoni-Wastila resides in greater Baltimore, Maryland where she writes, professes, mothers, and gives a damn, and in her spare time serves as Senior Fiction Editor of JMWWMichelle Elvy comes to us from New Zealand as editor of Flash Frontier: An Adventure in Short Fiction and Blue Five Notebook, though her latitude and longitude change daily these days.
The Header Art

We’d like to thank Nazifa Islam for the fabulous header art. Nazifa grew up in Novi, Michigan and received her B.A. in English from the University of Michigan.  Her poetry and paintings have appeared in a number of publications, including Anomalous Press, splinterswerve, and Flashquake.  Her debut poetry collection searching for a pulse is forthcoming from Whitepoint Press. She frequently updates her blog Thoughts Interjected and is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in poetry at Oregon State University.

  5. What a great idea this contest is. I need to get busy notifying friends over at Thinking10 and 6S. They toil every day of the year to produce fresh flash.
