Rodeo Contests

Each October, the weekly flash fiction challenges go on hiatus for a month-long series of flash fiction contests. Like a western rodeo, the event is an opportunity for writers to exhibit their writing skills in a friendly competition.

The Rodeo is free to enter and open to all writers. Leaders from the Carrot Ranch community develop unique takes on writing flash fiction. Judges from the greater writing community (or from the Keweenaw Peninsula which is world headquarters for Carrot Ranch) assist each leader.

Here’s the official Flash Fiction Rodeo Playlist to get you in the mood.
