Markets For Writers

This week’s market comes from the US. The organiser contacted me directly to let me know about a flash fiction competition with a difference. The Great Flash Fiction War is a competition that takes place over three days. The prompt for the competition is announced on the 21st October 2016 and you then have the next three days in which to write your story.

Stories of up to 1000 words are accepted.

The prize money is good – 1st prize will earn you $2000 USD.

Fourteen finalists will receive $100 USD.

All fifteen top stories will be published in an anthology. 

To find out more about the competition, entry fees and how to enter, visit the website

    I followed the link and wondered what it would be like to enter a contest like that. I guess it depends on the prompt?
