QuickFic 01/07/16

Gooooood morning, team. Ready for a flash fiction fix?

We definitely are.

It’s been a couple of weeks so let’s remind ourselves of the rules, shall we? They go a little something like this:

  • At 9:50 on a Friday, we give you a prompt
  • You write us a story, a very small one (up to 250 words), and send it to us at academy@faber.co.uk
  • (But make sure it has a title and your wordcount included before you do that!)
  • Do all of that by 2:50pm, because that is when the deadline is

At 3:30, we’ll announce the winner – and the winner will win these excellent books:


They look nice, eh?

Come on then. Let’s have a look at this prompt:



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.
