QuickFic 05/06/15

Hello there!

We missed you last week. We missed our Friday fix of flash fiction.

So let’s get ruddy well going on this week’s, shall we?

Now, a quick refresher of the rules, seeing as it’s been so long:

At 9.50 on a Friday (right about now), we give you a prompt. You mull that prompt over, then write a story of 250 words or less inspired by it. Give that story a title, then wang it in an email to us at academy@faber.co.uk, by 2.50pm this very day. No later, mind.

At 3.30, we’ll announce the winner, who wins a stack of wonderful books.



This week’s prompt is THIS:



Hmm. Wonder where she’s off to… Do tell us!

And just for that little extra motivation, these are those books that that winner will win:


L-R: I Think I Can See Where You’re Going Wrong, Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse, Y, The Girl In The Red Coat, Schroder

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.
