Our first 500-word Flash Fiction competition has proved incredibly popular, and the judges have loved reading all of the eligible entries.
We had a hugely diverse range of themes, genres and ideas, and we just know that our Flash Anthology – which will be publihed in 2021 – will prove just as popular as our Short Story Anthology did earlier this year.
However – Just like our short story competition, we did receive some entries that did not adhere to our rules, and therefore were disqualifed. If you’re entering the competition, please read all the terms of entry very carefully, to ensure your story is in with the best chance of being considered.
Even if you’ve entered our competitions before, go back and check the rules again.
Make sure you’ve got everything right – not just the word count, but the layout and document title requirements too. Make sure your document has a covering page, containing all the information we need.
In the meantime, we’re delighted to reveal our long list of authors for the November 2020 Flash Fiction competition:
Adrian J Curd
Deborah J Mantle
P J Stephenson
J M Thomas
Elizabeth Meg Wilson
Congratulations to you all!
The short list will be announced, and the two placed stories published here on our website, in mid-January 2021.
In the meantime, we hope all our readers and writers have a very merry and safe Christmas, and an inspiring and prolific 2021!
