We are please to announce our second annual flash fiction 36-hour story writing event! And you are invited to participate!
The rules are simple:
- You will have 36 hours to write a flash fiction mini-short story (1,000 words or less). The 36 hour period begins based once the topic has been announced and posted on this website. We plan to post the topic right before 9 AM on Friday, September 23rd.
- The short story must utilize the posted topic and be an original, unpublished work.
- Please observe the 1,000 word limit. 1,001 is okay for Scheherezade, but not for this contest.
- Stories must be submitted in Word or PDF format (or equivalent, readable documents) and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please do not post your short story elsewhere until after the judging is complete and the winners announced!
- Participants agree to have their work potentially published in a small anthology to benefit the Geek Gala operating costs. (Participants retain all other rights.)
- The winner will have their short story read on the Guardians of the Geekery podcast, published on this website, and will receive one ticket for this year’s Geek Gala – Oct 21-23.
- All decisions of the judges are final.
