Flash-Fic Fight Club

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The first rule about flash-fic fight club? We want everyone to talk about flash-fic fight club! So put your flash-fic writing gloves on and prepare for the battle of the pages.
Participants will be given a pen and paper and then be divided into groups of three or four. Each group will be given a "baseline" with two names, a setting, and a problem, and then, with just 3 minutes on the clock, pens hit the paper and the battle begins. When time is up, each member of one group will read out what they've written and the other groups and any audience members applaud to pick the story they liked the most. Then the next group does the same, and so on. After all that, if there's enough time, a second round will happen, either with the same groups or with the groups rearranged, however the participants want to do it.
