Flash fiction: Show us who you are and what you’ve got
Flash fiction gives you the opportunity to show the world your literary star quality… in 250 words or less.
The purpose of the contest is to inspire communication and creativity. The contest is open to all styles and genres.
Rules: Submit original stories only, of up to 250 words. Entry fee must accompany stories, as applicable. Contest closes on September 15. The contest will be judged by professional writers.
Two winners, one from the adult entrants and one from the youth entrants, will be chosen. They will each get the opportunity to read their flash fiction at the 2016 Word Vancouver festival, and their stories will be printed in a local magazine.
There will be one winner and nine finalists from the child entrants, and they will each receive a prize.
