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.
