Hi everyone,

I looked and couldn't find when we will receive feedback and scores for the first round in the flash fiction challenge. There's a very good possibility that I'm an idiot and just didn't see it, but if not, anyone have any ideas?

I don't remember if there's a specific date involved, but for the most part, we don't get results/feedback until right before the next round.

I'm not sure if it's because of the sheer volume of stories the judges have to get through, or because they love building suspense/tension... Either way, it's effective in the latter.

It's hidden away in the Official Rules/Participation Agreement:

21. Challenge Results and Group Finalists Announcements - All Challenge results and Group Finalists will be announced according to the schedule below: 

1st round - Challenge #1: 11:59PM EDT on September 12, 2018 
1st round - Challenge #2: 11:59PM EDT on November 6, 2018 
2nd round - Challenge #3: 11:59PM EDT on December 11, 2018 
3rd round – Challenge #4: 11:59PM EDT on January 23, 2019

Generally, we tend to get results 2-3 days before the next round and judges' feedback up to 48hours after results are received.

2 weeks.

14 days.

My heart is starting to beat incrementally faster, from now on, increasing with each completed planetary spin. 

f**k.

Thanks for answering this, person-who-knows-more-than-I-do... I remembered the results coming out shortly before the next round but was too lazy to look in the official rules.

For those of you who've done this before, is feedback received in time to incorporate it into the next round? It sounds like it could go either way, but it would kind of suck to end up with a big fat zero and go into the second round with no idea how to make it more what they were looking for.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no.  The last couple of years, yes.  Before that you were luck to get it at all, lol, but never before the next round started.

Maybe. Maybe not. 

BUT you are unlikely to get the same judges in Challenge 2 as you got in Challenge 1.... so don't be super hung up on thinking that the judges' feedback will give you the magic answers to what judges like across the board. I've had judges have differing opinions on the same story, let alone from challenge to challenge. 

It's super hard to know "what the judges are looking for" in this competition, because there's a pool of individuals, who change from round to round. As opposed to a venue where the same editors judge every event and you can start to get a feel for what they like.

Hopefully you've had a chance to participate in the forums and got some helpful peer review. That's probably a better place to find ways to improve, in my humble opinion.
