52 | 250 … Ten Years Later

52 | 250 A Year in Flash

was a ground-breaking project that helped develop the craft of many writers … and changed lives!

It ran from 2010 into 2011, and its basic parameter was  250 words a week, for 52 weeks, and each week based on a new prompt.

“It was international, it was about creativity, and it was limited to 52 weeks. It was beautiful.”
