January Writing Challenge

Authors! We have a flash fiction writing challenge for you.

This is the first of what will most likely be a monthly challenge, with the best stories posted on the Crystal Lake Publishing Patreon page (also part of the continuation of our Writers on Writing series). Our patrons will vote for their favorite, and the winning story will be published in an upcoming anthology (more on that later). The winning author will also be paid 2c a word.

Challenge details: write a flash fiction story between 100 and 1000 words (not a single word more) with a psychological horror look at loss. You have the weekend to write and submit your story.

Please email your submission to crystallakepub (at) in the body of the email. Every submission will be acknowledged, but only the authors of the best stories will be emailed once I’ve chosen my favorites for the Patreon page. Those names will be announced on all Crystal Lake social media platforms.

And if anyone wants to read and vote on these stories, check out our new $5 tiers on Patreon. There’s one for authors and one for readers. If you want both, you only need to join the $7 or higher tier:

Now get writing!
