Hi there! What’s that you say? You feel like today’s a day for a competition where you write words to win books?
Well, how fortunate. So do we.
If you haven’t played QuickFic before, it’s quite straightforward:
At 9:50 on a Friday morning (just about right now), we give you a prompt. You write us a story of up to 250 words using that prompt, give it a title, and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by 2:50 this afternoon. Not a second after.
At 3:30pm, we announce a winner, and that winner wins not three, not four, but FIVE excellent books.
Sound good? Good!
Here’s that prompt we mentioned:
And those books? Why, ’tis these ones:
See you 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.
