Why, hi. A very happy Friday to you – fancy beginning it with a spot of QuickFic?
Now, if you’re new to the game, this is how it works:
At 9.50am every Friday (now), we give you a prompt. You write up to 250 words of fiction about that prompt, give them a title, and send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by 2.50pm this afternoon. No later.
At 3.30pm, we announce the winner, and the winner wins the books. And books are great!

See you back here at 3.30!
By entering our QuickFic writing competitions, you’re granting us non-exclusive worldwide permission to reprint your story on our website should you win. The winner will also get a chance to win a place on one of Start to Write one day courses, because at the end of the year we’ll be choosing our favourite of all the winners – the champion of champions, let’s say.
