One of the things I have been up to while this here blog of mine has gathered cobwebs is Contest Fiction.
“What now, Contest Fiction?!”
Yes, Contest Fiction – a fiction contest site specialising in prose of the shorter form variety. More details here.
Its first contest is for Flash Fiction of no shorter than 250 words and no longer than 1500 words.
First prizes is $500 and prizes are also awarded for promoting your fiction and for reviewing the fiction of others.
“The judges of these prizes?”
Me? No not me, well only partly, no more or less than you though.
‘Again, what now?!”
All fiction submitted is published on our site within two working days. Then your story is left exposed and vulnerable to the heathen word-hungry hordes for their commenting, rating and reviewing. In modern parlance we have crowd-sourced the judging. We merely administer the smooth running of it all.
It also means that unlike most writing contests you can read the submissions of your rivals and see what you are up against!
And each month there are 10 free entries before the $10 submission fee kicks in.
Tempted? Flash us your fiction, go on!
