On Saturday February 27th, Arvon will run a science-fiction-flash-fiction twitter competition inspired by Bare Lit’s Afrofuturism panel.
Writers can submit their short-short-fiction (140 character or less) on Twitter by using the #6wordscifi hashtag or by visiting the Arvon stall at Bare Lit on Saturday February 27th. Writers are encouraged to write about utopias, dystopias, possible futures and Afrofuturism.
The winner, who will be judged internally and announced on Tuesday March 1st, will receive a £100 Arvon gift voucher.
Besides your short short fiction, here are some other ideas for using the hashtag on the day but obviously the sky and your imagination are the only limits:
– To raise awareness of any flash fiction courses, workshops, competition you might be involved in
– To get involved in the Afrofuturism debate which will no doubt be sparked by the brilliant panel organised by Bare Lit
– To share your favourite work of Flash Fiction
The hashtag to use on Saturday February 27th is: #6wordscifi
