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

General Submissions

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 five-to ten minutes for a 24-hour flash extravaganza.

  • This year's Flash Flood will take place on Saturday, 15 June 2024.  The first flash will post at 00:01 BST and we'll wrap up at 23:59 BST. 
  • Submissions for the 2024 Flash Flood will open at 00:01 BST on Sunday, 21 April and closed at 23:59 BST on Saturday, 27 April 2024.  Check our Submission Guidelines page for full details.

Community Focus

In 2019, we published our first community flash series, and would love to hear about other flash projects in different communities.  If you have a flash fiction project that might fit into our flash fiction celebrations this year or in the future, 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
and let us know a bit about yourself, your interests, and your availability.

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