Minimalism Contest



The Minimalism Contest: Words, words, words. There're too many of them. Too much time is wasted slogging through 10k plotlines, convoluted crosslinks, and every slasher cliche in between. Flash fiction is meant to be efficient — impactful. You get in; you get out. Bing, bang, boom! So, for the end of the year, let's keep it simple.

Post a short article in two months: No theme, no format, and no strings attached. Lay off the custom code & the deep-lore documents. 1st Place goes to the highest-rated article. Most Minimalist Article goes to the highest-scored article (see "Points System" Tab). 1500 words are the goal, but there's a 3k word limit. The shorter the better. What's not to like?
