Stone Soup holds a Flash Contest every month starting in September 2020. The Weekly Creativity prompt for the first week of every month provides the contest challenge. You can pick up the prompt on any day of the week it was first published, and submit your entries by noon on the Sunday after. The following weekend we announce the results in our Saturday Newsletter, and publish the work by our 5 winners, as well as the names of the Honorable Mentions.
