QuickFic 18/12/15

Good morning, QuickFic-ers!

Unbelievably, this is our last QuickFic of 2015. Time does fly, eh? That also means that over the Christmas break, we’ll be looking back over all our winners and choosing our champion of champions. We can’t wait!

But there’s still a chance to be one of those winners, because there’s still one more prompt to go. It’s at the bottom of the page – if you already know the rules, go check it out!

If you don’t, well, they’re pretty simple. All you have to do is take a look at that aforementioned prompt, then write us a story, of 250 words or less, inspired by it. Send that story, with a title and your wordcount, to us at academy@faber.co.uk by 2:50 this afternoon. No later. We can be right Scrooges when we want to be.

At 3:30, we’ll announce the winner, who’ll win these lovely books:


They’d make excellent presents, wouldn’t they? We won’t tell if you don’t…

Alright? Right!

Prompt time!


That’s not really the spirit of the thing, Jo…

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.
