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!

KICKSTART OUR 2021 ANTHOLOGY

Brilliant Flash Fiction needs a KICKSTART to fund our second print anthology.

When the world stopped in early 2020, writing and the arts kept going. We kept accepting submissions, we kept encouraging writers, and we hosted contests to continue bringing in new writers, new voices and new thoughts. We want writing to thrive, and we want to showcase flash fiction at its best.

To do that, we need your help.

Visit Kickstarter to pledge even a small amount of money—and earn rewards including stickers, pens, editors’ flash fiction tips, T-shirts, and reviews of your own work.

We have until December 11, 2020, 10 AM MST, to reach our goal of $1,000. All money will go towards funding the printing process for an anthology in 2021 featuring original work solicited from writers around the world.
