Welcome to Friday Flash Fiction
Welcome to Friday Flash Fiction, the site for writers who can cram an entire story into 100 words. For almost a decade, we've been publishing great short fiction from all over the world, and we're still going.
The essential challenge of Friday Flash Fiction is to write a fresh new story of 100 words (or just under) in time for publication that following Friday.
You'll notice that we also accept short poems and some flash fiction of up to 500 words, too, subject to some restrictions. However, every newcomer is expected to submit – and have published – TWO classic 100-word stories before we allow them to branch out.
Why not have a look at what our hundreds of writers submit? Above all, we'd like you to have a go yourself and send something in. It's not that hard, honestly.
Go on – why not try it?

We're experiencing lots of problems at the moment with writers who don't complete the Storybox forms properly when they submit. PLEASE read the instructions. If you're not familiar with publishing, you should be aware that agents and publishers are so swamped with submissions that they almost invariably throw out submissions that ignore guidelines – it's too easy. We try to be nice, but at least 50% of writers make it really hard.

OCCASIONAL (WE PROMISE!) NEWSLETTER?
Writers are reminded that we generally expect only one submission each week, and that it should not be a copy-and-paste from work published elsewhere.
We're currently operating a strict deadline for submissions: All stories must reach us by
the end of Friday (midnight) UK time
