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 .
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.

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
