Heads up on flash fiction

Yesterday was International Flash Fiction Day — an incredible global outpouring of tiny pieces of fiction, including Flash Mob and National Flash Fiction Day, which sparked the Scraps anthology and the incredible Flash Flood.

There’s always a lot of debate about flash fiction; “what is Flash?” and all that.

A lot of definitions are longer than the fiction; we talk about being transported, engaged, and about the “rush” of the short-shorts.

Yesterday, I read about eighty pieces, maybe more. I’m still reading today.  These are my favourites:

GRINGO by Jan FitzGerald

ANTARCTICA by Michelle Elvy

THE VISITOR by Maeve Heneghan

BIRD REPAIR by William Doreski

THIS ONE MINDFUL LIFE by Alison Wells

I’m still reading; this list will probably grow. If you have any recommendations, do post a link in the comments section below.

Enjoy!
