QuickFic 07/08/15

Good morning! Fancy a spot of flash fiction writing on this fine Friday?

Great — so do we. So let’s get started by reminding ourselves of the QuickFic particulars:

At 9:50 on a Friday, we give you a prompt. You mull it over with your Muse, then write us a story, of 250 words or less, and send it to academy@faber.co.uk. By 2:50 this very afternoon, please and thank you.

At 3:30, we’ll announce the winner, and the winner wins books.

These ones!


Clockwise from top: Strange Bodies, Girl In A Band, The Temporary Gentleman, Why Most Things Fail, Schroder

Right then! Let’s get going, shall we?

Here’s this week’s prompt:


Well now. Look at all those people, each with their own story to tell. It’s like a Lazy Susan of stories, is what it is.

Do tell us one. 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, basically.
