The go time: 12 a.m. Thursday, Feb 7.
The deadline: Midnight Saturday, Feb 9.
The word count: 500 max.

Flash Lit Feb is all about quick storytelling with minimum editing. Be it poetry, prose, stream of consciousness, or cartoons, just have fun with the theme and show us what you got.
How to submit your lit: You’re going to need a blog for this. If you don’t have one already, throw one up on WordPress or wherever and drop your link in the comments or join To Live and Write in Alameda on Facebook and drop it there. It doesn’t have to be fancy; let your words wow us.
When you share your link, you share it with the world — beginning with members of To Live and Write in Alameda and fans of this website. Please note that by sharing your work this way, you understand it will be available for anyone and everyone who visits this site. We reach out across social media to invite people to read these Flash Lit submissions, so only drop links to what you’re happy to share with the world.
