Flash Felon


Our Flash Felon mega-issue is full of sinister figures lurking in the shadows. 

Two of our Top 3 stories in this contest come from writers were who honorable mentions in previous contests. Always good to see.

Don’t forget to check out our results page to take a peek at the coveted close-but-no-cigar shout-outs. Our next quarterly contest theme will be Flash Icon and will require an iconic person, place or thing. Details within a week or two. And keep those dark and offbeat poetry submissions rolling in for the Shadow Awardpoetry contest. Soft deadline 5/31. 

And now, on to the goods.

Say ‘hello’ to my little friend.”
