For all the flashers out there!

Flash fiction is a great way to hone our concision skills–when every word counts, we’re forced to make tough decisions about what stays and what goes. How do we imply more than we’re actually saying? What images would be most meaningful in terms of character or plot? How do we make those last lines echo in our readers’ heads? Here’s a contest to get you motivated!

Submission deadline: June 30, 2014

About Leapfrog Press
Leapfrog Press was created to search out, publish, and aggressively market books that tell a strong story. Leapfrog began its life in Wellfleet, Mass., at the outer end of Cape Cod, in 1993. In 2008 we migrated to Falmouth, Mass., and in 2012 we made the move to Fredonia, N.Y., a town with a rich creative history and an equally rich present in the arts and science. Our list is eclectic and includes quality fiction, poetry, and nonfiction; books that are described by the large commercial publishers as midlist, and which we regard as the heart and soul of literature.
