QuickFic 10/07/15

Good morning, flash fiction fans. We reckon it’s high time for another round of QuickFic, and we’re pretty excited about this one. Eggcited, you might say.

Now, a quick reminder of how this here thing works:

At 9.50 each Friday, we give you a prompt. You go away and write a story, of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt. Give it a title and pop it into an email; an email which you should then direct to academy@faber.co.uk. You need to do that by 2.50pm and not a minute later.

At 3.30 we’ll announce a winner, and that winner will win some books. These ones, in fact:


L-R: The Accident, The Meeting Point, Mad Men & Bad Men, Authenticity, The Rest Just Follows (watering can not included)

Tempting, huh?

So. Want to see this week’s prompt? It’s ever so happy-making.

Here it is:


That got your muse musing?

Cracking. 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.
