Flash Mob 2013: The International Flash Fiction Day Competition

Flash Mob 2013
It’s here! FLASH MOB 2013 is live!  FLASH MOB 2013 is a hybrid competition and blog carnival. To  celebrate International Flash Fiction Day, writers around the world penned flash stories, sent in a copy to the four judges, and published their pieces on their own blogs. FLASH MOB 2013 showcases more than 100 stories from more than 100 writers.

Winners will be announced on International Flash Fiction Day, June 22. In the meantime, do visit the Flash Mob website to read the entries, which came in from every continent.  Links to the stories are online at: Flash Mob 2013. Each continent has its own link at the top, and on each continent page, you’ll find linked images of the authors. Click the images to go to their stories. Mine is in there somewhere too. You can travel directly to each continent by Tardis, right from here:
 Africa * Asia * Antarctica * Europe * Oceania * The Americas

Many thanks to the Flash Mob Team, who have been working so hard to put this all together:
Organizers: Michelle Elvy (New Zealand), Christopher Allen (Germany), and Linda Simoni-Wastila (Maryland), and the judges: Robert Vaughan (USA), Leah McMenamin (New Zealand), Marcus Speh (Germany) and Nuala Ni Chonchúir (Ireland).
Thanks, too, to artist Nazifa Islam for her beautiful header art on the Flash Mob website (and below this post). Last of all, but not least of all, thanks to all the writers who participated from so many places, far and near. You are all awesome!
