Hello there. Can we interest you in a spot of flash fiction frivolity?
That’s right. It’s Friday, which means a fresh QuickFic prompt and flapjacks for breakfast. That prompt is awaiting you at the bottom of this post. You should go and look at it, and then you should write us a story, of 250 words or less, inspired by it. Give that story a title, and then stick it in the body of an email (along with your wordcount) and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2.50pm (that bit’s important).
At 3.30 we’ll announce our winner, who this week will be winning this rather attractive stack of books:
Right. Here’s that prompt then:
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.
