During the week of February 7 to 14, 2010, our Flash Fiction Chronicles blog is holding its second String-of-10 Contest — String of 10 TWO — for the best 250-word story written from a specific prompt of ten words, which will be revealed at Flash Fiction Chronicles on Sunday, February 7, 2010.
Joel Willans is our guest judge for this contest.
We will be publishing the 1st Place winner here in Every Day Fiction (April 2010), while the 2nd and 3rd Place winners will have their stories published at Flash Fiction Chronicles (during the same month).
Look for full guidelines to be announced at Flash Fiction Chronicles on January 24, 2010.
