The Official Flash Fiction Day 2016 Blog Post

Here it is! The official list of participants for Flash Fiction Day 2016. From midnight to midnight on June 22nd (in their respective time zones) these fine writers will be attempting to produce as many flash fiction pieces as possible (from 1 to 1,000 words in length) in just 24 hours. If you haven’t signed up already, that link above will take you to the blog post where you can do that: I’ll be accepting new participants right up until the end of the event, so it’s still not too late to jump in!

If you’re trying to pick one of these to read, you may also like to look at the version of this list available on deviantART, where previews of each submission are available.

Here are the rules once again:

  1. The event begins at the very start of June 22nd, your local time. You can start writing any time after that.
  2. Write your first piece of flash fiction. Maximum 1,000 words, minimum 1 word. (I have read every conceivable 0 word story and am now bored of the genre.)
  3. Publish a blog post (or equivalent) titled “Flash Fiction Day Submissions” (or something more imaginative) containing that story.
  4. Leave a link to your post in the comments below (you don’t need an account or even an email address to do this). I’ll approve your comment and add the link to the body of this post as quickly as possible.
  5. Write more stories! Add those new stories to your FFD post (possibly with a note to say what time you started/finished them). You might consider tweeting each time a new story becomes available to read.
  6. That’s it! All your stories for the day are available in one place where readers can easily find them.
  7. When June 22nd ends, so does the event. Of course, you’re free to stop writing earlier if you like.
