How to Play

The Flash! Friday: Fire & Ice weekly writing contest will run from August 14 – December 18, 2020.

How to Play: Write and submit in the comments on the contest post, an original story 1) based on the photo prompt and 2) including EITHER the fire dragon or ice dragon‘s requirement. Pay attention to the 3) varying word count constraints! Story titles (optional) are not included in the word limit. At the end of your story, add your name or twitter handle, whether you chose the fire or ice element, and word count. That’s it!

Dos/Don’ts: Your entry must consist of your own original work. Stories violating copyright in any way will be deleted. This is a general audience contest (no minimum/maximum/mandatory Earth age to play), so please no gratuitous sex or profanity.


The Flash! Friday contest ran from December 2012 – December 2015. To grasp the various challenges and wacky obstacles writers were forced to battle, we welcome you to read any (or all!) of these thousands of stories.
