Flash 500 writing competition

Another great writing competition opportunity and my friend and co-judge for Writers’ Forum, Lorraine Mace, has asked me to let you know all about it. So. Ta-dah! This is all about it:

Flash 500 is a quarterly open-themed competition with closing dates of 31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December. The results are announced within six weeks of each closing date and the three winning entries each quarter are published on the competition website. The judge changes each quarter, details on the judge’s page at: www.flash500.com

Entry fee: £5 for one story, £8 for two stories

Optional critiques: £10 per story

Prizes are awarded as follows:

First: £250 plus publication in Words with JAM

Second: £100

Third: £50

Highly commended: A copy of The Writer’s ABC Checklist

Competition website: www.flash500.com

Good luck!

  1. Thanks for this – just put it on my blog. Perfect for any writer who is more Raymond Carver than Charles Dickens…


  2. This is a great competition, Sue. I entered this the other week so I am very excited to hear if I even get longlisted 🙂
