Do you have a passion for writing? Would you like to write for us and touch lives? MumsAloud is looking for passionate writers who can give us very short (flash) fiction, of up to 1000 words relating to family life, children or relationships. There’s no such thing as too short — if you can do the job in 50 words, have at it! — but our readers prefer stories that tell or at least hint at a complete story (some sort of action or tension rising to a moment of climax, at least a clue toward an end and finally a life lesson learned, though it doesn’t have to be all spelled out).

The story must be your own unpublished original creation. Since we do not have the time or resources to manage copyright permissions, please do not send us other peoples works. If you have to, please quote the appropriate source and link to where you got it from.
Your stories and essays should be typed, double-spaced, and free of short hand or abbreviated words. We will review this before we publish it on our site. Thank you.
