“Life Happens” Flash Fiction Contest Ends Friday

Ticking clockThe “Life Happens” flash fiction contest ends Friday!  All stories must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 18, 2012.  Main contest page.

Voting will end at the same time.  We’ll sort out the prizes  and post the winners to the blog next week.

Remember, the easiest way to win is to vote for any story and “like” CCC on Facebook.  You can vote for as many stories as you’d like, and each vote is a chance to win.

A note to writers: don’t forget that half of the winners are chosen by CCC judges and your vote count doesn’t matter.  Just so you get your story in by the deadline, you’re qualified to win, even if you don’t get any votes.

We hold flash fiction contests because we want lots of people to enjoy writing and participate with the cooperative.  Flash fiction contests are a quick, easy and fun way for us to encourage the art of writing.  We give away prizes because we can, and things are more fun when there’s something at stake.
