My Bio

FlashFictionMonth is a month long Flash Fiction writing event that has been running since 2009. Every July we ask you to write 31 pieces of flash fiction, providing you with numerous prompts, extra challenges, prizes, and an overwhelming amount of community love and support. For the last few years we have also organised these efforts through our group FlashFictionMonth .


:ahoy:For the remaining 11 months of the year, you are welcome to share ANY and ALL (FFM related or not) flash fiction stories (under 1000 words, or thereabouts) to our "General Flash Fiction" folder for the edification of the masses.

THE GAUNTLET WINNERS are here (or have been for a while, but we had computer access woes, the void of dreams in inhospitable to electronics, go figure). So here's a link to an AWESOME feature full of AWESOME writers. Give it a read! And yes, we did just have to link our own feature post in a separate journal, because apparently group journals don't reflect on the main account anymore, and therefore no one will be notified of its existence. Nice DA. Really feeling the lit love over here. P.S. Anyone have any alternative site options we could consider for hosting FFM? If you know of anything, send us a note. We'd be very into it. Just...so into it.

You might think that Flash Fiction Month is by far the most dastardly and soul destroying flash fiction writing challenge on the whole of DeviantART (if not the entire internet) but you'd be WRONG! That glorious (if slightly concerning) honour in fact goes to THE GAUNTLET, which is run by the equally glorious (and slightly concerning) @BATTLEFAIRIES. Only a true fiend could concoct such monstrous challenges, and where we the Hydra fear to tread (making our participants cry* is something we've been told to actively avoid, alas), @BATTLEFAIRIES ventures boldly forth, sowing havoc, and delirious words in their wake. We bow before their might. But if the organiser is a force to be reckoned with, then the participants of the Gauntlet are EVEN MORE SO. For only the truly deranged would attempt such a terrifying event, and fewer still emerge on the other side victorious. To these few titans, these slayers of flash fiction challenges, and persons of indomitable will, we offer this

At last, we present the highlight of our year, the Flash Fiction Month COMMUNITY FEATURE! Here we honour the many writers who contributed their stories to this years FFM, gathering up all the favorites that were suggested to us by the community. It's always felt important for us to acknowledge just how AWESOME each and every single one of you are for taking part in FFM. We say it all the time, but we wanted you to know just how much we meant it, and so the Golden Mug awards were born - because to us (the terrible Hydra) you are ALL winners, and are all worthy of recognition and praise. Some of you may have won prizes (mugs golden or otherwise), but even if you didn't (this year), that doesn't mean you are any less valued. It is for this reason that we have battled the mighty Eclipse to bring you this awkwardly formatted feature! (On account of all the changes from Eclipse, this is best viewed on a computer; we can't guarantee the behavior of formatting gremlins in any other

More Information

If you're looking for more information about the event, we suggest you take a look at the links below:




FFM is run by a multi-headed, ever-changing roster of anonymous volunteers and past FFM participants, who are known collectively as HYDRA - hence the plethora of serpent/tentacle/cthulu/dark overlord references you will likely encounter during your time here. But we're a relatively friendly multi-headed be-tentacled cosmic entity, promise. ;)

Heyo! Was just wondering since FFM is this close: is it ok to post the FFM stories on some other platform and link to said platform? Or would a hybrid where the challenge entries are posted here on DA and the rest are posted only somewhere else be better? I'm trying to see how much I can avoid Eclipse in the following weeks when I get swallowed into the world of flashfic :XD:

Our policy has always been open to people participating from different venues, so sure, go for it! As long as links are provided, and there's no need to sign up somewhere else to view it, it's all good. ;)

Fantastic! Thank you so much! :D

Hi! I'll be looking forward to this, though I have no idea where I'll be come July xD I will definitely be writing stories every day tho, maybe some short ones with added poetry :D
That's the spirit.:la:
