LVW Invites Entries to Fifteenth Annual Flash Fiction Contest
Once again we are holding
a Flash Fiction Contest that
awards cash prizes and
charges NO entry fee.
Submissions will be accepted
at the stroke of midnight
on April 15, 2019 and
must be received by
the stroke of midnight
on August 15, 2019.
As always, authors of the winning
entries will be invited to read their
stories aloud at various venues
during the Halloween season.
Winning stories will also be published here.
Because these are Halloween stories, topics in past years have ranged from ghosts to dragons to spooky/scary places. This year's topic is elves and/or fairies. Let your imagination run wild. Flash fiction means that the story must be less than 1,000 words long. And please, no poetry.
The first prize winner will receive $50, second prize $25, and third prize $15. There will also be three honorable mentions, which will not receive cash prizes but will be published and read aloud with the other winners. The authors of all six winning entries will also receive a one-year complimentary membership in Ligonier Valley Writers. This permits them to attend most LVW events free or at reduced prices.
