QuickFic 24/04/15

Good morning to you, fine fiction folk.

It’s high time for another round of QuickFic, we reckon. Remember QuickFic? That thing we do every Friday?

Just in case you don’t, it’s all very straightforward:

At 9.50am (now!) we give you a prompt. You write a story of 250 words or less, give it a title, and send it to us at academy@faber.co.uk – by 2.50 this very afternoon, please, and no later.

At 3.30 we’ll announce the winner, and the winner will win the very attractive books pictured at the bottom of this post.

Sound alright?

Smashing. Well, here it is, this week’s prompt:



And here they are, those books you just might win:



L-R: The Discreet Hero, Kitty Peck and the Music Hall Murders, Music As Alchemy, I Think I Can See Where You’re Going Wrong, One Three One


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 our 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.
