Ready for a round of flash fiction fun?
We sure are.
Below is a prompt. It’s a first line, because we’ve not done a first line for a while. Anyway: you should go and look at that prompt, and then you should write a story, of 250 words or less, inspired by it. Send us that story, in the body of an email, to firstname.lastname@example.org (include a word-count and a title) by 2:50 this very afternoon.
At 3:30 we’ll announce the winner and the winner will win books!
Let’s have a look at that prompt, eh?
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.
