Wanna be a Dragon Captain??? Here’s your chance to choose the stories you think ought to win! Serving on a judges’ panel for Flash! Friday doesn’t require a pages-long resume or a full trophy case. You should know a little something about writing (enough to verbalize why a story does or doesn’t work). Beyond that, our requirements are simple:
Be thorough. Be fair. Be kind.
- Each panel consists of eight rotating judges in teams of two who will serve for six months (once a month, for six months). Don’t worry; we are magnificently flexible when it comes to swapping dates around to fit your schedule. This is meant to be fun, not burdensome, and Life Happens.
- Because it’s teams of two, you are welcome to request a specific fellow applicant as your co-captain.
- While serving on a panel, because our process is blind you are welcome to continue competing at the Flash! Friday contest, but you will be ineligible to win the week you are judging.
- By submitting your application, you agree to do your best, have a blast, turn your results in on time, and that dragons are pretty much the most awesome creatures ever.
- As thanks, you’ll get a totally fiery awesome judge’s page here at FF where you can strut your stuff. And YES, at long last! As a “Dragon Captain” you will get your own special e-badge to show the world you’re part of the most awesome flash fiction family in the world.
