#QUICKFIC 16/11/2018

Hello there lovely #QUICKFICers,

Can I entice you into writing a piece of flash fiction for me? I can?! Brilliant.

It’s fairly simple; you’re about to be hit with a prompt. Using that prompt, write a short story of 250 words or less. Paste your offering into the body of an email, including the title and the wordcount, and send it to academy@faber.co.uk by 2:50 pm today. Here’s what’s up for grabs this week: 

a stack of books "The Red Haired Woman" by Orhan Pamuk, "Leila" by Prayaag Akbar and "Caroline's Bikini" by Kirsty Gunn -Faber Academy's flash fiction competition #QUICKFIC 

Without further ado, here is your prompt:

A face looms form the darkness. Only the top half of this face is visible, with the mouth and 80% of the face shrouded in darkness. The only bright colour in the image is a plain red knitted beanie, perched atop the person's head. We can also just see a tuft of hair peeking out from the brim of the cap. The rest of the image is plain black. - Faber Academy's flash fiction competition #QUICKFIC 

Chop chop! We’ll be back at 3:30 pm with your winning entries.

By entering Faber Academy’s flash fiction competition #QUICKFIC , you’re granting us non-exclusive worldwide permission to reprint your story on our website should you win.
