Up to three shorts under 500 words
Flash fiction, micro essays, or prose poetry (NO lined poetry, please)


Flash is often defined by what it isn't: it isn't more than 500 words, it isn't a full narrative, it isn't plot or character or just a poems without line breaks. Flash, however, is an opportunity.

For the reader: to rotate a whole in the mind, to encounter language pruned and curated, a candy quick to dissolve that lingers on the tongue. 

For the writer: to flex and bend, produce fresh expression within limitation, to discover the essential. And in the end, speak through the unsaid and arrive at something unexpected.
