Prompt #1

Happy July 21st! Today is National Junk Food Day! Although junk food has little nutritional value, your flash fiction, prose poems, and micro essays are enriched with all kinds of things we at NANO Fiction love to see! Why not celebrate National Junk Food Day by writing something greasy, sticky, salty, and sweet?


Write an essay, flash fiction piece, or prose poem of under 300 words about junk food. Describe a day where someone eats 300 bags of pork skins, use a fast food restaurant as your setting, or even introduce saturated fat as a character in your piece.
