Meet the Judges at Flash Mob 2013

Flash Mob Update!!!

When I was asked by Linda Simoni-Wastila to be the American judge, one of four international judges, for the upcoming Flash Mob’s International Flash Fiction Day Competition, I said yes!!! Before I even had a chance to consider it: YES! Linda and I go a certain distance back…we have been loyal readers and have commented on each other’s writing (hers is superb!) in more than one writing community (including 52/250, Fictionaut and others).

We also are editors for the same journal, JMWW, and were both asked to step into senior editorial positions last year, Linda is Senior Fiction Editor, and I am Senior Flash Fiction Editor. Then we both had the honor of placing in a recent competition together (yes, she kicked my butt! But no one better to do it!) in the Flash Fiction Chronicles String-of-10 5 contest this April:

Here’s Linda’s: String-of-10 Contest First Place Winner, Linda Wastila « Flash Fiction Chronicles

And here’s mine: String-of-10 Second Place Winner – Robert Vaughan « Flash Fiction Chronicles

So, when she most recently asked if I’d do a question and answer with her for this “Get to Know the Judges” at the Flash Mob site, I said OF COURSE! And now, here it is. Thanks a ton, Linda, for all you do, and what you mean to me:
