QuickFic 18/09/15

Good morning!

We’re in a QuickFic sort of a mood. And we’ve got a brand new prompt ready and waiting for you. If this isn’t your first rodeo, head on down the page and see it!

If you’re new to the game, let’s break it down:

Every Friday, at 9:50am, we give you a prompt. You write us a story, of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt. You give it a title (don’t leave it up to us; we’re idiots) and you pop it in an email to academy@faber.co.uk.

You do all that by 2:50 this afternoon and you might win some books! Here they are, look:


L-R: Private Life, All The Colours Of The Town, Every Day Is For The Thief, The Temporary Gentleman, Their Lips Talk Of Mischief

Nice, right?

Here we go then, this week’s prompt:



Right, let’s get going! We’ll see you back here at 3:30, when we’ll announce the winner.

Happy writing!

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.
