Flash Rage

16 Apr

Resistance is in the air lately, and in the case of our Flash Rage contest, it’s made for some great art. This time around we asked for stories of rebellion, revolution, and revenge. You answered that call with one of our strongest contests to date, and the ten stories you’ll find below reflect the high quality of submissions that came from around the world, with entries received from the USA, U.K., Ireland, Canada, Australia, Germany, Spain, Kenya, Israel, Thailand, and Korea.

Keep your eyes peeled for our second annual Shadow Award poetry contest, which will open within a few days. And our next quarterly flash fiction contest will be open shortly after that. 

We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!
