Not poetry but…

52|250 ten years later: 2020/2021. This exciting project asks for flash fiction (up to 250 words), by daybreak on 4 January 2021. (International timezones are taken into account.) This print anthology will feature 2 stories by each writer – one new story, and one from 10 years ago. Please check out full guidelines. This is the follow-up to “52|250 A Year of Flash”, but you can still submit if you didn’t take part in the original project.
