June’s Flash Fiction Competition

This month is a special month. Sure they’re all special, but this one stands out as there’s a prize!

Our Artist-in-Residence, Sophia Johnson has graciously agreed that from now on, in addition to creating stand-out art for out logo each month, she will reward the winner of the writing competition with an original piece of art, inspired by the winning entry.

Now how can you say no to that?!

OK, on with the competition.

June sees us take to the by-ways of the British Summer. I want genre inspired by beauty. Conflict, contradiction and downright comical. I wan weird, wonderful and wonky.

I looked at these photos and imagined sharks in the canals, dead letters in the post box, day-time ghosts in the cathedral and much much more.

What do you see?

I’ll take your 300 Words.

Aim for Times New Roman and 12 points if you would be so kind.

Either submit in the body of the email or as an attachment.

If you do decide to grace us with your prose, there’s a good chance that at some point (probably a year down the line) we might use it in a ‘best of’ collection. So, be warned, by sending us your stuff, it will/might be published in an outmoded form called paper and as such, you accept this. Should this happen you will be offered the opportunity to buy the book at ‘cost’ price + delivery.
