QuickFic 01/05/15

Why, good morning!

We’ve got a QuickFic sort of a feeling, how about you?


Now, a quick re-cap of how it all works:

At 9.50am (now!), we give you a prompt. You write a story of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt, give it a title and send it to us at academy@faber.co.uk by 2.50pm this very afternoon.

At 3.30 we’ll announce a winner, and that winner wins books. More on those in a second.

Without further dilly-dallying – although we do enjoy a dilly-dally – let’s get onto the important matter of this week’s prompt.

It’s this:



Well now. What’s that all about?

Meanwhile, here are those books you could win:


L-R: Cedilla, Ban This Filth!, Joan of Arc, The Last Word, The Dark Stuff

Tempting, right?

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 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.
