Looks like thunderstorms on the horizon...

 FlashFlood is open for submissions from 1 – 7 May 2022

It's that time of year again!  Submissions for FlashFlood, NFFD's online journal, will open for one week only, starting this Sunday.  The submission window is from 00:01 BST on 1 May to 23:59 BST on 7 May 2022. We're looking for pieces of up to 300 words on any topic, in any style.

Full submissions guidelines are available on the FlashFlood website and you can submit via our free-to-use submission manager, Duosuma. (You will need to register for a free account, but no subscription or fees are required.)

Please note that we have two separate submission calls, one for general submissions and one for our series of special slots reserved for new writers.

All accepted pieces will be published during the 2022 Flood on 18 June 2022, starting at 00:01 and lasting until 23:59 BST.  During the Flood, we'll publish a new flash at every five to ten minutes for 24 hours straight.

Our team is looking forward to reading your work....
