Event Details

5th Annual Short Short Story Contest to Support Literacy Flash Fiction Contest. Write a story using 100 words on one of four topics: bicycles, eclipse, fire, and suitcase. Grand prize: $300. Five other $100 prizes: four topic winners and one Youth Prize for writers 14 years and younger. Publication in an e-magazine. All ages.

No geographical restrictions but story must be written in English. The contest is a fundraiser for Ethos Literacy, a nonprofit providing free literacy tutoring to adults.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
