2016 Spider’s Web Flash Fiction Prize

Today is International Women’s Day and as such, I want to mention a flash fiction contest sponsored by Spider Road Press.

Spider  Road Press is an indie, women-owned publisher based out of Houston, Texas, with a focus on publishing and promoting fiction by and/or about strong women. From their website:

We at Spider Road Press believe that good writers can do good in the world.

5% of the proceeds from all Spider Road Press titles are donated to charities which address the issues of sexual assault, supporting American veterans, empowering youth and fighting hunger at home and abroad.
