This week, I have something for those of you who like to write short, short fiction. Scottish Book Trust hold a monthly flash fiction competition, ‘The 50-Word Fiction Competition‘.
Each month they give you a prompt to get you started.
There are two categories – the Young Writers Category (below the age of 18) and one for all those aged 18 and above – the All-age Category.
Prizes are awarded to the winner of each category:
- All-age Category: A writing mug from The Literary Gift Company.
- Young Writers Category: A selection of fantastic books.
Winning stories are published on the website.
