This year, we celebrated June 22’s National Flash Fiction Day with events around the country, from North to South. We congratulate the winners and all readers and artists and musicians who shared their creative energy into our events. And we thank the NFFD City Chairs who make it all happen!
In addition to winning flash fictions and new work that was shared…
