Submissions Are Open!

Inspired by Love

Love songs have made the world a better place for thousands of years. Great lyrics tug at our emotions and inspire us with a simplicity that seems impossible, telling a short, short story just like flash fiction.

Give us your best stories inspired by your favorite songs of first kisses, sweet meetings, marriage proposals, first dates, reunited flames, and even those that celebrate a love that has stood the test of time. Put a fresh spin on it. Tell it from a different perspective or what happened before or after the song.

So set your playlist to love songs and be inspired. Be sure to tell us which song inspired you but don’t use any actual lyrics in your story.
