The Summer 2017 Reflex Fiction flash fiction competition is now open for entries.
We had a fantastic response to our inaugural competition; over one thousand entries from seventy different countries. We’re busy reading and judging in preparation for announcing the longlist on April 1. In the meantime, the next round of the competition is now open for entries. We’ve introduced an entry fee but also stuck a zero on the end of each of our prizes . . .
First place £1,000, second place £500, third place £250 (or the equivalent in the winner’s local currency).
£7 / $9 / €9
Vanessa Gebbie will be picking the winners.
Submissions should be made via our online entry form.
Entries must be received before midnight UK time on May 31, 2017. Judging will take place in June. The longlist will be announced on July 1, 2017, after which we’ll start publishing one story each day, starting with some of our favourites that didn’t quite make the longlist, then non-winning long-listed stories, culminating in the publication of the winning stories at the end of September.
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 full Rules.
