A while ago, the Queer Science Fiction group on Facebook had a flash fiction contest based on the word “flight”. My entry was one of the ones chosen for inclusion in the anthology that came out of the contest. If you like flash fiction, I recommend checking it out.
The 2016 Queer Sci-Fi Flash Fiction Anthology – “Flight”
A 300-word story should be easy, right? Many of our entrants say it’s the hardest thing they’ve ever written.
Queer Sci Fi’s Annual Flash Fiction Contest challenges authors to write a complete LGBTQ speculative fiction micro-story on a specific theme. “Flight” leaves much for the authors to interpret—winged creatures, flight and space vehicles, or fleeing from dire circumstances.
