Write a new story every week

Join our weekly flash fiction writing challenge!

Every week, we post a set of flash fiction prompts. You write a super small story (500 words or fewer), post it on our forums, give and receive feedback, and join us for a Friday night online open mic night.

In the last couple of years, Flash Face Off has grown from a casual lockdown pastime to a massive community of amazingly supportive and wonderful writers getting published and winning prizes all over the joint.

As Ray Bradbury said, “it’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.”

Flash Face Off is kinda awesome, and we’d love to see you there.

How does Flash Face Off work?

1. Every Saturday, head to the blog and grab the opposing prompts for the week

2. Pick your side and write a story!

3. Post your piece in the private Flash Face Off forums for feedback, praise, oohs and aahs, and suggestions from your fellow flashers by Thursday midday.

4. Join us at 8pm each Friday for a free flashin’ online open mic where we invite our fave writers of the week to read their work

5. Next Saturday, a new prompt goes up, and we do it all again…

Is this for me?

The best way to improve your writing is to give constructive, positive feedback on other people’s work and to receive the same on your own work.

Breaking and remaking stories is the cornerstone of rapid writerly improvement. Also it’s a butt-tonne of fun and the community is lush.

If you want to practice your writing, regardless of where you are in your writerly journey, and want to hang out with the most word-writing, biscuit-dunking, story-slinging, tea-drinking, super supportive writers in town, this is the place for you. 

 (18+ only please. We r rude. May contain adult topics and themes and other allergens.)
