This month’s theme is the mystical.
I’m thinking Genies, Sirens, deep sea beasties and the like. Transport your imaginations back, before the internet and rollerskates, before elevators and speedboats or not.
Place your beasties somewhere different and let’s see what you create.
Just the one submission each per person, please.
300 words, maximum.
Deadline is Midnight GMT on the final day of the month.
Please allow Zeroflash the first opportunity to publish your work. Once the competition is over, feel free to publish anywhere else you like.
Do your best to format as Times New Roman and 12 points please.
Please state if your entry is for the competition in the subject line of your email.
Every month we will decide on the best story and make a showing of it for the world to see. We’ll tell everyone that it’s great and they should admire and praise it…and then we’ll start all over again.
PRIZE: An original illustration of your winning entry from either of our three artists-in-residence, Sophia Johnson, Andrew Howell or Jon Stubbington and £10 from my back pocket.
