Reflex Fiction Flash Fiction Competition


The inaugural Reflex Fiction flash fiction competition is now open for entries.

Reflex Fiction is more than a flash fiction competition. Of course, entries are read and judged, a longlist created, winners selected, and prizes awarded. But that’s not where the story ends. Reflex Fiction is also a place to read and share fantastic flash fiction every day.

After we’ve announced the competition longlist, we’ll publish one story each day as we count down to the publication of the third, second, and first placed stories. If you’d rather we didn’t publish your non-winning story so you can enter it into another competition, you can opt out of the open-submissions element of Reflex Fiction when you submit your story. Though, of course, we hope you’ll join in the fun.

Visit the Reflex Fiction website to learn more.


First place £100, second place £50, third place £25.


The inaugural contest is free to enter.


Submissions should be made via our online entry form.


Entries must be received before midnight UK time on the 28th of February 2017. The longlist will be announced on the 1st of April, after which we’ll begin counting down to the publication of the winner on the 30th of June.


Stories must be fiction, must be the entrant’s own work, and must be between 180 and 360 words inclusive. See the Reflex Fiction website for the full Rules.
