Microfiction is defined as “a fictional work of extreme brevity that still offers character and plot development.” This month we’re looking for a poignant piece of flash fiction that maintains all the main components of a longer story (characterization, plot development, dialogue, etc.) but still reels us in with a mere 300 words (or less!).. So get to paring down that story, and remember that concision is key! Want guaranteed feedback on your submission? We've got an option for that! Just add "Contest Entry + Critique" to your cart, and your critique will hit your inbox January 27.
