Member-Sponsored Love in a Flash Contest
|Deadline:||Feb 14, 2017|
Valentines Day is fast approaching, so in honor of Cupid, I want to see some romantic flash fiction.
Let’s celebrate love. Love can be fast and furious, or it can be long and enduring. It’s the only thing in the world that can lift you up in one moment and crush you in the next. I want to read all kinds of love stories--the thrill of first love, the trials and tribulations of relationships, hot, passionate love, and even the sadness of lost love. I want to read your version of love.
Stories will be judged on the following:
Love and/or romance theme must be present.
Engagement: Your romantic story should make me feel something.
Stories must be flash fiction, which is 1,000 words or less.
Prize money for this contest is provided by the Scribophile Writing Contest Prize Fund.
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
|1st prize:||$75 cash via PayPal, 1 month subscription to Duotrope|
|2nd prize:||$50 cash via PayPal|
|3rd prize:||$25 cash via PayPal|
