Flash Fiction Comp opens on 17th September

Our first flash fiction competition opens for entries on 17th September 2018.

Prizes? Yes, there are prizes! 1st £100, 2nd £50, 3rd £25 plus publication on the Askance website and as much publicity as we can muster.

How many words is ‘flash’? For this competition we mean a minimum of 250 and a maximum of 1000 words.

Any theme? Yes, any theme you like, we’re not telling you what to write.

So what are we looking for? Others express plenty of lofty ambitions about exciting new voices and stories that thrill and entrance etc etc but what it comes right down to is this: a good story, well told. We’re always open to originality of form or content just so long as you keep that basic premise in mind.

Any entry fee? Yes, the entry fee for each story will be £6.00.

We welcome writing from anywhere in the world, previous entries to Askance competitions have come from many countries including Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, United States and the United Kingdom.

Check back to the website on September 17th details of how to enter. We’ll post it on Facebook too. Get writing!
