Needle magazine's flash fiction challenge

Since I don't have enough going on right now I decided to throw my hat into the ring and participate in Needle Magazine's flash fiction challenge. More detailed rules are here, but it boils down to this. Write it, but no more than 1,000 words. Post it, or find some place that can, by May 18. They will draw a name from those who posted and they win a Needle t-shirt. The only catch is that the story has to include a needle somewhere.

So, the prize winner is picked at random, but there is this.
We’ll also look through the stories to see whether anything might be a good fit for the summer issue of NEEDLE, expected out around the first of July. If it seems like a fit, we’ll chat about it.

While I would never turn down a t-shirt, that would be the real prize.


  1. Just posted mine - how about you, Jarrett?

  2. You are well ahead of me, Sue. I've had a busy weekend and haven't even put words on the screen. I have thought about it, though. Have the beginnings of an idea germinating.
