Coming faster than the speed of light is Rediscovered Books' first ever Flash Poetry Competition. The rules are simple: competitors get one prompt, 20 minutes, a limit of 400 words and three judges. Inspired by the success of 2015's Flash Fiction event, hosted in conjunction with the Idaho Horror Film Festival, this competition is in search of poetry lovers—or literary types who love a challenge.

Kim Ellsworth, marketing coordinator at Rediscovered, wouldn't reveal the judges' names but hinted that participants shouldn't be surprised to see an English professor or published poet at the judges' table. Based on last year's wildly successful turnout for Flash Poetry, Ellsworth said she anticipates a pretty great evening. And no need to sign-up—just drop in and be prepared to ready, set, write—in a flash.
