Two Open Contests for Both Flash Fiction and Flash Nonfiction
How to Write Short is Roy Peter Clark's well-reviewed book about how to master the craft of writing a short piece. The fact that there is an entire book about it tells us that short does not equal easy. For me it's tougher, but very rewarding.
(I like that pencil-in-the-bullseye image.)
