There will be Madness # 5 - A Flash Fiction Slam.

There will be Madness  # 5 - A Flash Fiction Slam was held at The Gallery at Avalon Island (37 S Magnolia Ave, Orlando, Florida 32801). Eight writers faced off head to head in three rounds and there was only one winner. Jessie Bradley was the MC. What does it take to compete?
1 - No greater than 250 word story for the first round
2 - No greater than 500 word story for the second round
3 - No greater than 1000 word story for the final round
The last writer standing will received a copy of both There Will Be Words chapbooks for 2016.

In this town where poetry readings are a dime a dozen, it is nice to let some prose develop characters and plot. The best part: the audience decided who wins each round (which means, feel free to bring as many friends as possible to help rig the competition in your favor). I felt that my vote counted. Only take eight writers could compete. To sign up, e-mail or on the invite page. The show started around 7:00. Connie Cassia Heinz took home the grand prize.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
