Flash Fiction – February 2018

Did you enjoy your school days, or did you hate them? Either way, our February Flash Fiction competition can take you back to those hazy, crazy, lazy daze. Just as when you went to school, the first English essay when school resumed was, “What I did on my holidays”.

So, that’s our FF topic for our BWI New Year commencing in February. In not more than 300 words, “What I did on my holidays”.

Entries will close at 4pm on Friday 23rd February, with the winner announced at our Members Night on 28th February.

Good luck and best wishes for xmas and the New Year, and if Santa brings you a bike, don’t fall off and hurt yourself, we need you! And don’t forget that Mummy and Daddy will expect you to have completed all your homework projects on time.

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).
