You made it!
It seems remarkable that it was only back in September 2013 that Scotswoman Emma Baird first posed her challenge to LinkedIn users in the LinkedEds & Writers Group: write a Flash Fiction story of 100 words or fewer on the following Friday.
Within a year over 1000 stories were submitted; scores more visitors came to read. But as the discussion developed, it became clear that more contributors still were needed, and it had to be easy for them both to find us, and then to find a way of posting their own stories.
So now we have a permanent website, showcasing our particular brand of flash fiction. That's where you are now. Remember as you read what's here that the contributors do it for fun, to try out writing styles, and to entertain - themselves as well as you. If you think you could do better, then we'd definitely like to see you try. Even if you feel yours wouldn't be as good, send something in anyway. We're really very nice to new authors. Classic Friday Flash Fiction contains no more than 100 words, but we're interested in other stuff, too. Tell us a little about yourself if you can, too. There's a little bit about some of the existing writers on this site. They almost all have day jobs, even if most of them need to get a life.
Go on – why not try it?

In addition to this website, there's a companion WordPress blog run by one of our members. It has many of the stories you'll read here or at LinkedIn. Click anywhere here if you prefer WordPress.
