Event Details

“Therefore, since brevity is [still] the soul of wit,”

Sleek City Press seeks to challenge writers in time-honoured tradition to say it all in one hundred words. No more. No less. Titled.

We broached the subject of a drabble extravaganza with guest adjudicator Jennifer Geist who agreed to judge the fifty finalists and so here we are: DRABBLEXTRAVAGANZA lies ahead.

We will be awarding prizes for the top ten drabbles which delight, dazzle and make us wonder how the author said so much with so little.

Prizes are $250 for each winner plus publication.

Dilettante and distinguished drabble exponents may submit up to three entries each.

Prizes are limited to two per person for this contest.

The contest is limited to international entries written in English from contestants who are 18 years of age. Authors are free to compose fiction that matches the wordcount using any original approach.

FEE WAIVERS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR WRITERS IN DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES.
