Karen (karenwb) | 33 comments Hi,

Starting at the end of the month, my blog will be hosting Flash Fiction Fridays, which will showcase various writers stories.

Would you like to contribute? I am highlighting different themes each month. First up is horror for October, followed by another sort of scary thing--family gatherings. It is 500 words maximum. The horror deadline is 9/29 and the November deadline is 11/1.

You can e-mail your submission to me at karen@karenberner.com. Please put "Flash Fiction Fridays" in the subject line.

The only thing I ask in return is that you follow my blog. No biggie, right?

I am looking forward to reading your work.

Karen

Susan Gottfried (westofmars) | 68 comments Karen, I am confused on how you're going to run this. Will it be a blog carnival, where we post the fiction on our own blogs and send you the link? Or are you going to post our fiction on your blog? Will you accept all that's submitted, or will you vet the entries somehow?

I sent it to her.

Hi, Susan.

I plan on posting everyone's fiction on my blog. That way, readers can come to one site for all.

In the beginning, I'd like to post all of the submissions I receive. Eventually, when the numbers grow, there will have to be some reviewing process. So get your material in early, so you can be assured of a spot.

I will have the full year's worth of themes and deadlines on Bibliophilic Blather on Friday, 9/17.

A.F. (scribe77) | 142 comments I have a question. Are you looking for original fiction, or would you accept something that has been posted previously on another site?


message 8: by Karen (new)

Karen (karenwb) | 33 comments As long as there are no copyright issues, I will accept something previously published. I will put a sentence at the end, like "This story was previously published in ... or on..."
