Edited by Josh Neufeld and Sari Wilson, and featuring 45 star fiction writers and comics artists, Flashed is a collection of flash fiction stories in comics and prose, pressed up against one another. In dialogue. In concert. In conversation. The stories are arranged in “triplets”—each grouping a kind of call-and-response among the respective contributors. So Flashed is more than an anthology; it’s a conversation—among some of today’s most exciting prose writers and cartoonists—and between the forms of prose and comics.

WHAT IS FLASHED?

Flashed is a collection of flash fiction stories in comics and prose, pressed up against one another. In dialogue. In concert. In conversation. The stories are arranged in “triplets”—each grouping a kind of call-and-response among the respective contributors. So Flashed is more than an anthology; it’s a conversation—among some of today’s most exciting prose writers and cartoonists—and between the forms of prose and comics.

Flashed is the result of a two-year project in which editors Josh Neufeld and Sari Wilson recruited writers and cartoonists to respond to one another’s work with original pieces of flash fiction. Why flash fiction? It’s the perfect form for a project that’s all about pushing boundaries and cross-fertilizing creative communities. (For the purposes of this project, we defined “flash fiction” as a maximum of 1,000 words and “flash comics” as no more than four pages.)
