My friend Jon Strother over at the Mad Utopia blog is compiling an anthology of the best flash fiction stories from participants in the #fridayflash group he sponsors. Every Friday people post a piece of fiction of less than 1,000 words on their blog, and Jon gathers the links to each of them and lists them on his own blog. There’s a wide range of genres represented, and I enjoy browsing them each week for something quick to read.
Seven stories were nominated by readers who haven’t submitted anything to the anthology, and the story that receives the most votes will be honored with The Reader’s Choice Award. Anyone can vote, and there is nothing to sign up for or join. It’s simply an attempt to recognize some authors whose stories have made an impact on readers.
If you would like to read these 7 stories and help select the best of the group, go to Jon’s blog: http://jmstrother.com/MadUtopia/?p=535 and vote for your favorite.
Full disclosure: I don’t participate in #fridayflash and don’t have a story in this contest, but I did nominate one that I loved. Whether or not that author wins doesn’t affect me as I don’t know the person and don’t get anything for promoting the contest.
