November Flash Fiction Competition

General Information:
Entries are limited to financial members only. Entries will not be accepted if they exceed the maximum word limit – even if by one word, and must comply with all the required parameters. Your email must include author’s name, story title, and word count. One entry per member, and sent as a Word file (.doc or .docx file). PDF files will not be accepted as they lose formatting in transition.

Come along to our Members’ Night on Wednesday 29 November at 6.30 pm at the Bunch of Grapes Hotel to hear the winner announced. You can have dinner there from 6 pm (Results will also be posted here the day after.) This is also the night that we announce the winners of the Southern Cross Literary Competition, and, our wind-up night of the year. A great evening should be had by all who are there. RSVPs will be asked for.
