If this is your first time playing QuickFic with us, let us lay it down for you:
At 9.50am each Friday, we give you a brand-new prompt. You write us a story of 250 words or less inspired by that prompt, give it a title, and then zip it off to us at email@example.com by – now this bit’s important – 2.50pm today. Not a single second later.
At 3.30pm, we announce a winner, and the winner wins books. These ones, actually:

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.
