Hello there, you beautiful flashy flash fiction writers.
It’s almost time to reveal this week’s QuickFic prompt. It’s a little bit eerie, a teeny bit French, and hopefully packed to the margins with inspiration.
But before that, let’s remind ourselves of how this thing actually works.
- Look at the prompt
- Write a very small story, of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt
- Give it a title, and tell us your word count
- All three of those things (story, title, word count) should go into the body of an email
- Send that email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by 2:50pm today and certainly no later
And that’s that! We’ll read ’em all, and then at 3:30 we’ll announce the winner. That winner will win these wonderful books:
Here’s this week’s prompt then:
Where’ve they all gone?
Tell us! And we’ll 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.
