National Flash-Fiction Day are looking for stories up to 500 words by May 17th for this year's anthology:
This year we are looking for stories which take their place in the
larger web of art. So we are looking for pieces which have been inspired
by another work - a book, story, poem, painting, photograph, piece of
music, or anything else artistic. It can be a direct relationship, or a
loose one, an homage or a tangential glance which sparks the muse. We
don't mind the connection, we just want to see how other works of art
feed into your writing.
Word count: 500 word maximum.
Deadline: Midnight GMT on Friday 17th May 2013.
Location: Submissions are welcome world-wide, with no restriction.
Submissions: Please paste your stories into the body of an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Maximum of 2 stories per writer, and please send them in the same email.
Small Print: No simultaneous submisions or previously published
work, please. However, work previously posted on your own blog or
website is fine.
We will not consider any work which is any way offensive or discriminatory.
There will be a fast turn-around on this anthology, in order to get it
out in time for the Day, so you should hear back promptly, but if you
have any queries or questions, please contact us through our general
email address, rather than the anthology one.
This year's anthology will be edited by Calum Kerr and Holly Howitt.
The two editors will read all the submissions and draw up their 'wish
list' before wrangling endlessly over which ones make the final cut.
