Zombie Author Flash! Fiction by Eloise J. Knapp


Eloise J. Knapp

Glass shatters downstairs. Didn't have anything to board up the windows.

Hold tight to the kids. Tell them it's going to be okay.

Hear his screams as he tries to distract them.

Kiss the kids' heads. Close the closet door.

See the wood splinter, feel them tearing flesh from bones.

Closing eyes
         can't care

A Zombie Author Flash is exactly 55 words long. It may be factual, creative, or a “flash-fiction” story. Ideally, the author flash will represent something essential or unique about the zombie author. Jule welcomes contributions from zombie authors or their reps. Original work from any of the zombie authors will be greeted with squeals of delight and published faster than you can say "zombie apocalypse."
