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: 'Parting is such sweet sorrow' 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!
