QuickFic 26/06/15

Hello there, dear QuickFic-ers.

We did miss you ever so last week. But did you have fun making up a tale for Ricardo the blue-footed booby?

Well, seeing as it’s been so long since we last played, shall we remind ourselves how this here QuickFic thing works? Go on then:

We’re about to show you a prompt. You have until 2.50pm this very afternoon to write a story, of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt, and to send it to us at academy@faber.co.uk. We’ll choose a winner, and at 3.30pm, we’ll publish that winner’s story right here. Oh, and they win books!

These ones!


B-T: Y, The H-Bomb Girl, The Girl In The Red Coat, Telegram From Guernica, When The Lights Went Out 

You ready for that prompt now?

Ready ready?

Good! Here it is:


Aww. What’s on her mind?

You tell us – and we’ll 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.
