Your Pulp (Flash) Fiction Stories
This Week In Writing, we celebrate your entries in The Pulp Fiction Writing Challenge and ask for your feedback for future writing prompts.
Last month I launched the Pulp (Flash) Fiction Writing Challenge. The prompt invited you to use the Pulp Magazine Archive or PULP-O-MIZER to inspire a pulp fiction story. Today, I’m excited to share with you some of the best stories submitted!
Before we get to the featured stories, let’s talk briefly about future writing challenges and prompts for The Writing Cooperative. I’m always looking for new ways to engage you in the community, so I’m interested in your feedback about this challenge and the possibility of future ones.
Hit reply and let me know what you want to see in future challenges and prompts. It will help me shape new opportunities.
Ok, on to your stories!
