Writer Advice Flash Prose Contest

As featured on the Writer Advice site . . .

Writer Advice is searching for flash fiction, memoir, and creative non-fiction that grabs, surprises, and mesmerizes readers in fewer than 750 words. If you have a story or memoir with a strong theme, sharp images, a solid structure, and an unexpected discovery, please submit it to the WriterAdvice Flash Prose Contest.


I’m not familiar with this contest, but I felt it was notable in that entries will include flash memoirs, a prose form I am currently working in, and a topic I hope to cover here . . . in one of my upcoming blog entries.

I don’t see many flash fiction contests that include the category of memoir, and I welcome any additional flash memoir contest leads that can be sent my way.

As always, I'd love to receive news from anyone who enters and wins this contest.

We had a wonderful collection of entries this year. Winners will be posted in the summer issue.

We plan to run the contest again next year. Visit Writer Advice, to sign up for announcements.
