No fixed abode

I forget where I came across this competition for European writers. (Edited to say: thank you Old Kitty for reminding me that I found this on womagwriter's blog.)

It's a flash fiction competition with a £60 prize pot but no entry fee. The word limit is 300 and the theme is NO FIXED ABODE. The only down side is that you have to enter by snail mail - but there's plenty of time to do that as the closing date is November 30th.

I'm sorry it's only open to Europeans. I'll be interested to know if you enter!

Interesting - and only 300 words, that's like three tweets, how hard can it be?

(I know, I know...)

I'm going to try and find out. Let me know if you do too!

Old Kitty said...

I saw this on womagwriter's blog. I'm tempted do it just for the nostalgia of snail mailing a story to a competition! LOL!

Thanks for the info! Take care

Thanks, Kitty! That's where I saw it and I've edited the post to reflect that.

Thanks for the tip - I may well enter. Although my main computer is in meltdown at the moment so I'm feeling a bit restricted!

Eek, Simon! Computer meltage is not good! I hope it gets sorted out soon.

Go for it, Whirl!

Yeah, go for it, Oh Whirly One... it's the kind of thing you'll be good at. :-)

Hey, Richard, Happy Birthday!

aspiring x, I like the picture too so it's great that it's under a Creative Commons licence.

I wonder if I could enter. Seeing as I have one foot in Europe.

fairyhedgehog said...

Ann, I hope you can!
