The 2019 Penprints Flash Fiction Dash Wrap-up

Today is the wrap-up for the 2019 Penprints Flash Fiction Dash!

We had 39 sign-ups this year, but sadly 17 of our writers were unable to complete the challenge due to lots of crazy life stuff (heck, I wasn’t even technically participating in the challenge and had a hard time tending to it this year).

But we still have over twenty stories in eight different genres (I’m using that term loosely, haha), and they’re all gathered here for your reading pleasure!

Disclaimer: I own none of the prompts.

  2. I agree with Carrie-Anne above – all seem to be working except for Lupe and Lisanthus. ^_^ I’ve been slowly reading my way through the others, and they’re SO good! So much variety even within the same prompt!

    Thank you so much for putting this together, Rosalie!! I had a BLAST. (And I’m sorry my story didn’t turn out very dystopian-ish hehe.) Writing a story based off a prompt is such a fun challenge!
