Good morning! We’re pleased to say we’ve just about recovered from your Halloween efforts last week. So let’s get another round of QuickFic on the go!
If this isn’t your first rodeo, you can head on down the page and check out this week’s prompt. We’ll see YOU GUYS later.
If this is your first time playing, let’s just quickly run over how it all works:
At 9:50 on a Friday, we give you a prompt. Sometimes it’ll be topical, sometimes it’ll just be something we like. Muse on it with your muse, then write us a story, of 250 words or less (certainly not more, for then we would have to disqualify it), inspired by it. Give that story a title and pop it in an email to email@example.com, all by 2:50 this very afternoon.
At 3:30, we’ll announce the winner and the winner will win some rather excellent Faber books. Five of them in fact.
That’s all pretty straightforward, right?
Great. Let’s take a look at that prompt then:
Nice one, Tom.
See you guys 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.
