Group-Sponsored Experimental Flash Fiction Contest
|Deadline:||Oct 15, 2014|
This contest is co-sponsored by Please Try This at Home, an experimental fiction group, and Flash, a flash fiction group.
We are looking for flash fiction, 1000 words or less, written in experimental forms. This could include:
- false non-fiction (fake news articles, definitions, technical reports, etc.)
- computer code
- catalogs or lists (listicles)
- non-linear narratives (can be linked to a dropbox file for formatting, but make sure to put the link in the body of the piece, not just the ‘about this work’ section)
- invented dialects or experimental languages (but NOT bad accents)
This is not an exhaustive list; please feel free to surprise us with a form we’ve never seen before. Just remember that it’s the form that needs to be experimental, not necessarily the content.
All genres are welcome and adult content is okay. You do not need to be a part of either group to enter, but you’re strongly encouraged to check them out.
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
|1st prize:||20 karma points|
|2nd prize:||15 karma points|
|3rd prize:||10 karma points|
Entries must be received before midnight, Wednesday, 15 October (UTC time).
Entries must be no more than 1,000 words per Scribophile's count.
Multiple entries are allowed.
Work must have Public visibility on Scribophile until a winner is announced.
To enter the contest, post your work on Scribophile and check the box that says "Enter this work into the Group-Sponsored Experimental Flash Fiction Contest." Your work will automatically be considered.
The checkbox will be visible until the contest deadline, which is in UTC time.
Entry is free, but you'll need karma points to post your work. You can earn karma points by writing critiques of work by other members.
If you have placed in a contest in the past with a particular piece, you may not resubmit that piece in other contests.
