I would like to welcome our judge for this quarter: Chris Curran. This category is open and already attracting entries: flash fiction
For the Novel Writers
The Novel Opening and Synopsis category is open for entries until the end of October, so there is plenty of time for you to fine tune those opening chapters. As for the synopsis, it's one of my least favourite tasks, but so satisfying when it finally comes together. Our regular judges, the senior editors at Crooked Cat Books, are on standby to look for the gems.
Short Story Category
Don't forget, if you have any longer stories (up to 3,000 words), our short story category is open for entries until 28th February 2018: short story.
For information on all three categories, visit the Flash 500 Homepage.
