Our 1st Flash Fiction Writing Competition is now open!

Maximum: 250 words
Phrase for this month: What the Dickens?
Deadline: Midnight on 1st April 2011

Entry is FREE!

Each month we will be holding a flash fiction competition where the winner will win What the Dickens? goodies to the value of £10.

Submissions must be in by midnight on the 1st of the month and the winner will be announced 2 weeks later. The winning entry will be posted up on our website for all to read.

Please submit your entry to submissions@writersgifts.co.uk

The usual standard applies: A4 double spaced, title of story at the top. Remember: DO NOT put your name on the story itself! In your e-mail, send a separate cover note with your name, e-mail address, title of your story and word count. If you are the lucky winner, we will send you an e-mail to tell you so and ask for your postal address to send you your lovely things.

The theme this month is: What the Dickens? so you can use this in many ways...as a title for your flash, have a character say the line, thread the individual words in to your flash...whatever you do, it's up to you!
