Tinsel Tales Flash Fiction Contest

Tinsel Tales Flash Fiction Contest
Flash fiction contests are always popular, so I thought you might like to hear about this new contest for short stories of up to 250 words on a Yuletide theme.

The Tinsel Tales Flash Fiction Contest is run by the excellent WriteLink writers community, and is open to anyone in the world.

There are cash prizes for the top three stories of 75, 50 and 25 UK pounds. There are also runner-up prizes for "Very Highly Commended" and "Highly Commended" entries.

The competition judge is Lorraine Mace, a well-known columnist and writer, and tutor with UK distance learning college (and regular clients of mine) The Writers Bureau. You can find out more about Lorraine at her website and blog.

There is a registration fee of 4.50 UKP per story, which you can pay online using Paypal or send a sterling cheque. Once you have registered you are given the choice of submitting your story immediately or at a later date. The final closing date is 31 December 2009.

Finally, I should mention that The Tinsel Tales Flash Fiction Contest is sponsored by the Festival of Writing in York, England, in April 2010. This is a major national writing event, in which several members of my forum will be participating as workshop leaders, and no doubt others will be going as visitors. I will write more about The Festival of Writing in a later post.

Good luck, and happy flash fiction writing!
