We're pleased to announce the winners of the Winter 2018 Flash Fiction Contest. They are:

Grand prize:  Tragedy Level 9_Flash Fiction by Roxanne

Take a look at the picture above. 

In 200 words or less, write a flash fiction story based on the image. The challenge of flash fiction is to create a thought-provoking story within the tight word constraints of the writing form. 

The story can be any genre as long as it is based on the picture. You can submit as many entries as you like but we'll only judge your most recent two entries based on posting date.


  • One winner will receive $100.
  • Two runner-ups will receive $25.

Good luck!
