It’s that time of year again. Yes, unceasing, torrential rain – it must be summer. And that means it’s time to launch our annual Flash Fiction competition. We’ve decided to push the limit up once again – this year you get 300 words, which is very nearly a whole page of A4!
The subject this year is “Nest” – you can interpret that however you want. But remember that every word should count – you’re looking to distil the very essence of your story into its purest form while at the same time immersing the reader into the scene. And also remember that 300 words is a limit, not a target. If you can achieve what you want in 219 or 73 words, that’s fine.
Deadline is 10 August with winners announced on Thursday 5 September 2019. Full details and rules are on our Competitions Page.
