Flash Fiction for April 2019

This month (April 2019) let’s go for emotion. So, the word, “emotion” must appear in the story. There’s no specific genre, and you have up to 234 words to use (NOT including the title).

Entries must be in by midnight on Wednesday 17th April 2019. Voting will open soon after and close at 11.59pm on Easter Monday 22nd April. The winner will be announced at the Members Night on Wednesday 24th April 2019 at The Bunch Of Grapes Hotel in Pleasant Street Ballarat.

Conditions of entry

Your entry must be sent as an attachment to an email file. In the email make sure to include your name, the title of your entry, and the word count of your entry, not including the words in the title of your entry.

  1. Be in 12 point, Times New Roman font.
  2. Have single line spacing.
  3. Have a title.
  4. Be submitted as a word.doc, or .docx file, (PDF files lose all formatting in their transition) If you use PAGES on a Mac then you can still save the document as a .docx file, or you can download WORD for Mac (I think WORD is best, but that’s just me).
  5. You must be a current member of Ballarat Writers.
  6. One entry per member.
  7. All conditions as above must be adhered to including – e.g. just one word too many, or the wrong font will invalidate your entry.

Judging may be moderated by non-entering member readers.

Please make sure you make full use of F7, and, or, GRAMMARLY. Call me if you need assistance with these, on 0409023919.

Happy writing
