BWI Flash Fiction Competition October 2019

Congratulations to Neville Hiatt, winner of September’s Flash Fiction competition, for his story “2020”. You can read this in last month’s post.

You may be familiar with the saying ‘all that glitters is not gold’. October’s Flash Fiction prompt is “All that Glitters“.

You are limited to 111 words (not including the title).

Our Flash Fiction prize is a commemorative wine glass engraved with the Ballarat Writers logo, and details of FF month, winner, and title of story if it’s not too long – the title I mean.

Entries close at 11.59 on Tuesday, 22 October.

Voting closes at 11.59 pm on Sunday, 27 October. 

The winner will be announced at our Members’ Night on Wednesday, 30 October.

  • Must have a title or it will be rejected
  • Current BWI member
