A rather new free event, held by the FaceBook group Rhetoric Askew, brings us to this weeks “Friday Night Flash”! The word limit is held to 500 words maximum, and a flash fiction or poem is acceptable.
This weeks event will be judged by Mandy Melanson, with the assistance from Terri VonFeldt. The winner(s) will be announced April 5th and will have their story or poem posted on the Rhetoric Askew Website along with a brief bio, picture, and contact information such as website or FaceBook pages, etc.
Not only is this a great way to practice your writing by being presented a somewhat random story requirement for free, you get to meet new people and possibly get a bit more publicity if your story or poem is selected.
You should never give up on your dreams. There are so many people in the world telling you what you should or shouldn’t do, and being negative. This is your life and you should live it by doing what makes you happy not everyone else.
