Greetings all,

I have asked the all-powerful overlords of SFFW if I could start a detailed discussion on this topic and I'm sure they will let me know soon enough. :)

In the meantime, any one who likes writing and reading flash fiction, of a speculative nature, may like to look HERE (http://www.flashspec.com).

If this post is deemed inappropriate, please feel free to remove it.

The mods have given me the thumbs up so I'd love to hear some feedback from anyone who's checked out the link above and read about our new FlashSpec project.

Is it open to everyone? Or do you have to be Austrialian?

As it says in the submission guidelines:

We are seeking submissions from Speculative Fiction Authors worldwide...

So yes, open to everyone. :)

All right, I'll take up your challenge, knave! *picks up glove and slaps Erebus across the face*

Seriously, I'm starting on my submission now. I say everybody who posts regularly at SFFW should submit. Let's bury 'em!

One question though, the guidelines allow for "dark/supernatural themes" and does this include ghost stories? I'd expect so, buy I want to be sure.

Absolutely! :)

There appears to have been some confusion with how the submission details were posted and understood. Accordingly, the Guidelines page has been amended, hopefully clarifying the submission process. Please make sure you read all the Guidelines thoroughly if you are submitting.

I haven't submitted anything to anyone in a long time, but hey, since you asked. Worst case--nothing happens. (I could start papering my desktop with e-rejection slips:rolleyes: )

I'm not really good with short. But if I can construct something suitable, I'll give it a shot.

Are you allowed to mention when this will be published, and if anyone we know will be included?

B5

BTW--anyone know a good opening sentence?

The release date is anticipated for September 2006.

As for knowing anyone....well I'll have a few stories in there too. ;)

How the bob of joe do you write a story in 1000 words max?:confused:

I have a new intro i'm working on that is 810 and i haven't even gotten to the story yet.

I'd love to enter but i don't have a clue how to start-develop-and-end a story in under 1000 words.

If anyone has any guidelines or basic principles for it then please send them my way.
