Shall we play a round of QuickFic?

Before we do, let’s remind ourselves of the particulars. We’re looking for stories of 250 words or less, inspired by the prompt which we’re about to show you. You should send those stories (along with a title and a wordcount) in the body of an email to academy@faber.co.uk by 2:50 this afternoon.

You might win these books!

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.
