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.

9A045634-E7F3-4227-BDCD-C7554CDCB8CDMany thanks to all the Brilliant Flash Fiction supporters who contributed to make our Fifth Anniversary anthology possible. In just nine days, we reached our goal of $1,500 to cover the cost of producing our first print publication, an anthology of the editors’ picks of the best flash fiction featured in Brilliant Flash Fiction (online) over the past five years.

The anthology will also include stories shortlisted in a writing contest to be announced in June.

The anthology launch/celebration will be held in Fort Collins, Colorado, on October 19, 2019, in conjunction with the Fort Collins Book Fair. All our supporters are invited to attend the book fair, where Kathy Fish will lead a flash fiction workshop. Kathy has also agreed to judge our writing contest, and to speak at our launch. We are thrilled to have such an inspiring teacher and speaker at our first event. (more…)
