Ready to get your QuickFic fix?

Before we have a look at this week’s prompt, let’s have a quick reminder of the rules. They’re very simple:

We’re about to show you a mysterious and potential-laden prompt. You should have a look at it, allowing yourself to be slowly but unavoidably drawn down the potent path of inspiration, and then you should write a story, of 250 words or less, using that prompt in some way.

Send us that story to academy@faber.co.uk by 2:50pm this afternoon, because that’s when the deadline is. There’s an excellent chance that you might win these books!

See you back here at 3:30!
