QuickFic 13/11/15

Well hi there. Great to see you at the Inspiration Station this fine morning.

If this isn’t your first QuickFic fix, head on down the page and get that prompt.

If you haven’t played before, let’s have a quick rundown of how it actually works:

At 9:50 on a Friday morning, we give you a prompt. You write us a story, inspired by that prompt, of 250 words or less. That bit’s important. Then give it a title and send it to academy@faber.co.uk, by 2:50pm, because that’s when the deadline is.

At 3:30 we’ll announce the winner – and that winner will win these books:


L-R: Cover Her Face, Bark, The Pocket Wife, White Crocodile, Amnesia

Sound alright?

Great. Let’s have a look at that prompt then:


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.
