What is the Flashwords! contest?
Flashwords! is a fun, free contest open to all paid registrants for the New England Crime Bake. In October, the committee emails the details of that year’s challenge to write a flash fiction story of no more than 150 words. Each entry (one per person) must include at least ten words from the provided word list and a crime or suggestion of a crime. The entries are judged without author identity and winners, announced at Crime Bake, receive books or other prizes.
