It’s your big opportunity to hone your writing skills by writing micro fiction for our contest, containing all the elements of story: characterization, setting, conflict, resolution.
First prize: publication on our blog and possibly in a future anthology, plus a $15 Amazon gift card. (We may also want to publish other entries besides the first place on the blog.) We’ll announce the winner a week after the deadline.
Here’s your assignment. Write a short-short story of 500 to 1000 words. Our topic this time is TIME TRAVEL. No profanity is allowed (replace it with descriptions like “he cussed a purple streak”). No explicit sex. Email it before Oct. 7 to flashfiction “at” castlegatepress.com.
Need some guidance about what and how to write? Check here for info from Ben Wolf, editor of Spickety Magazine.
Tell your friends! And get to work!
