QuickFic 11/09/15

September has sprung. And we’ve decided to embrace it; to welcome it with open arms and a seasonal QuickFic prompt. More on that in a tick!

First, let’s remind ourselves how this QuickFic thing works. It’s very easy.

At 9:50 on a Friday morning, we give you a prompt. You muse with your Muse about it, and then write us a story, of 250 words or less, and send it to us at academy@faber.co.uk. It’s usually best to give it a title, because otherwise we will. Do all that by 2:50 this very afternoon, and then sit back and wait for us to announce the winner.

We’ll do that at 3:30, and then we’ll send that winner THESE BOOKS:


T-B: If Walls Could Talk, All Day And A Night, Original Rockers, Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse, Angel With Two Faces

Sound good?


Here is this week’s prompt:


See? Open arms.

Happy writing! 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.
