QuickFic 08/05/15

Hello there. Won’t you come on in?

Now, don’t be sad. It’s QuickFic time. And if you don’t know what that means, well, it’s very simple:

At 9.50 every Friday, 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 afternoon. No later.

At 3.30, we’ll announce the winner, and the winner wins books.

Get on with it! you cry. What is this prompt you’re waffling on about?

It’s this:



And those books we mentioned before, the ones the winner will win? Why, ’tis these:


L-R: Ten Storey Love Song, The Killing of Bobbi Lomax*, The Poisonwood Bible, The Consolations of Economics, Contested Will 

*Hot off the press! By super-talented Academy alumna, Cal Moriarty!



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.
