Flash Fiction Contest: Love in Paris!

Welcome, writers, to Page Turner Magazine’s Spring Flash Fiction Contest! Cast your eyes below at the flash fiction prompt! We want to see your flashiest, fictioniest genre work. 

During this round, we’re celebrating spring, the time of year when a writer’s heart turns to thoughts of amore. 

Of windswept vistas and longing gazes. Of stolen moments and furtive glances. Of passion that stirs your soul like the movement of the tides. 

We’re talking about Romance.
