Slight Change to Highly Commended Prize for Flash Fiction
I have received many emails asking if a paperback of Bad Moon Rising could be offered in place of the e-book. I'm more than happy to comply and will send a signed copy to the highly commended author if that is the preferred choice of books.
For all of you who have made the second quarter 2013 long lists, congratulations and good luck with the next stage of judging.
If you missed out this time, here’s hoping you make it through in one of the other quarters this year. Both categories are now open for entries. For more information on everything to do with both competitions, visit the websites: Flash 500 Flash Fiction and Flash 500 Humour Verse Competition.
Don't Miss Out on our Annual Competition for Novelists
Unlike the flash fiction and humour verse competitions, this is NOT run on a quarterly basis, but is an annual competition with a six month entry period, which opened on the first of May and will close at the end of October each year. Information regarding prize money, judges and rules can be found on the website: Novel Opening and Synopsis Competition
