Good morning, flash fiction fans. Ready for a prompting? A little inspiration on this gloomy day?

Great! We’ve got just the thing. Those of you who’ve played before can skip on down the page and check it out. But if you’re new around these parts, or a little rusty on the rules, a quick reminder:

  • You’re about to see a prompt
  • We’re after very short stories, of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt
  • Those stories should be sent (in the body of an email, along with a title and your wordcount) to academy@faber.co.uk by 2:50pm this very afternoon
  • At 3:30 pm, we’ll announce the winner, and that winner will win these books:

Phew. Recap over, let’s move ever onwards, and check out that all-important prompt.

This is it:


See you back here at 3:30!
