What are Flash Battles?
Show your colors proudly as you go head to head to defend your team honor. Register to compete in the Flash Battle Leagues where writers will be randomly chosen to write flash fiction pieces of 500 words or less from three elements. Registration is not a guarantee of participation and will depend on the number of sign ups, but we will do our best to get everyone a chance to battle at least once every season. Ready to be a team player?

Combatants will be contacted one week before the intended battle to make sure they will be able to participate. Winners will be awarded points for their team as a whole which will accumulate until the season’s end. Registrations open again at the start of each three month season, allowing combatants to switch teams if they so desire.
CURRENT SEASON ENDS 05/31/2021
Schedule a Duel
Whether you have a friendly wager, a bone to pick or want to raise money for charity, schedule a matched duel with up to three other writers. Flash Battle Duels do not earn points for any team.
