Kickstarter Success

It’s done! We raised $1,575 to finance our 2021 print anthology, thanks to the 39 heroic backers of our month-long Kickstarter project. THANK YOU ALL. Watch this website for further anthology developments. (If you subscribe to Brilliant Flash Fiction, you will receive automatic email updates.)

Brilliant Flash Fiction will celebrate a happy Christmas this year, and we wish the same to our generous supporters.

On-the-Spot Writing Contest Winner

Thanks also go out to the brave participants of our virtual on-the-spot writing challenge. These writers were given one hour in which to write a story based on the prompt “Race,” created by First Reader Kari Redmond, who hosted a Zoom session attended by an international audience.

We received 30 entries at the end of an hour, and the winner is Hannah Whiteoak. Her story, After the Race, will appear in our January 31 issue and she will be paid the standard $20 fee for publication. Congratulations, Hannah!

As this was a fundraising event, we requested donations from the writers who entered the contest, and they increased our treasury by $170.

We are grateful to everyone who helps us continue our mission to publish and promote flash fiction. When you click the Donate button on this page, you are helping us pay writers for their work. Our staff is entirely volunteer and we are a 501(c)3 charitable organization.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
