Thought folks might be interested to know there is a flash blast in September at Bootcamp Keegan.
Bootcamp Keegan is an online writing site which as the name suggests is tough and rigorous and not to everyone's taste, but is excellent for honing - and learning about - writing craft through writing and critiquing.
The Flash Blast is open to anyone and the best stories produced will appear in Eclectica Magazine, a short story magazine with an excellent reputation that takes literary stories and flash fiction.
You can find out more at http://alexkeegan.blogspot.com/
The blast is free and I think there is a half-price offer still going if you like the Bootcamp experience and want to join properly.
