Flash Flood is National Flash Fiction Day's curated online flash fiction journal.

We open for submissions for one week a year.  During that week, we receive over 1,000 stories and select our favourites for publication on National Flash Fiction Day.  On that day, we post a flood of flash, with a new story appearing every ten minutes or so.

  • This year's Flash Flood will take place on Saturday, 15 June 2019.  The first flash will post at 00:01 BST and we'll wrap up at 23:59 BST. 
  • On Sunday, 16 June 2019, we'll have a mini Flood of flash written on the theme of 'epiphany' by men at HMP Wandsworth who were participants of Safe Ground's Flash Fiction Project workshops.
  • The 2019 submission window is now over.  Submissions will open for the 2020 Flash Flood in the spring of 2020.  Check our Submission Guidelines page for dates and details.

If you have a flash fiction project that might fit into our flash fiction celebrations in 2020, we'd love to hear from you; drop us an e-mail us at nationalflashfictionday@gmail.com and tell us all about it.

If you have some time in the spring and would like to volunteer to help with the Flood, we'd love to hear from you.   E-mail us at nationalflashfictionday@gmail.com and let us know a bit about yourself, your interests, and your availability in Spring 2020.

Happy writing and happy reading from all of us at Flash Flood.
