QuickFic Flash Fiction Writing Competition – 12/02/16

Hi there!

Are you feeling in a flash-fiction sort of mood?

Because we have exactly the thing if so. Yep, it’s time for another round of QuickFic – so, experienced Fic-ers, head to the bottom of the page for the prompt!  For those of you who are new around these parts (welcome, by the way), it’s a very simple game:

We’re about to show you a prompt. You should write a story, of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt, and send it to us (academy@faber.co.uk) by 2:50pm this very day. No later.

The winner will win these LOVELY BOOKS:

You *don't* win my weird hand.

Look at these books! You could win these books! But not my weird hand! You don’t win that!

Come on then. Let’s have a look at this prompt.


Wow. Don’t they look creeptastic?

See you back here in a bit!

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.
