Weekly flash content, starting on Friday (think New York time zone) and then runs for 24 hours. Prompt changes weekly and submissions are free. Prize is accolades and an annual anthology of selected winners. Idea is to get writers loose and creative, makes sense and definitely worth a check on a Friday for a little inspiration. Word limit is 300.
Running a cool 300 words or less contest this summer about urban legends. This is your chance to twist a tale and make us all scream or shiver a little in the summer heat. Prize is 50 pounds - think 75 bucks - with a 2 pound entry fee. Love the idea but don’t ‘love’ it too much as porn isn’t accepted here. Deadline is end of Sept. 2018.
BRILLIANT FLASH FICTION
This one is wide open. No prompt so you can scribble whatever the summer tickles you with and then submit it to Brilliant Flash Fiction for free. Yup, no sub fee and a first prize of 50 euros. Second place pockets 25 euros and third step on the podium gets you 15 euros. Deadline is Sept. 15, 2018 but keep your brilliance under 300 words.
Contest pops up every quarter but they got one ending Sept. 30, 2018 so it works here. Again this one is prompt free but it does have a sub fee of 5 pounds. Not to fret though because once you win it they give you back 300. Or 200 for second and 100 for third, more than enough to turn a regular summer day into something fun.
