drawkcaB Fiction Contest

2 May 2013


June 22 is National Flash Fiction Day in the U.K. and many places around the globe. To commemorate this auspicious day, Postcard Poems and Prose will sponsor a flash fiction contest based on the theme “Backward”. Since this is our second fiction contest and the deadline is June 22, the winning author will receive an Amazon gift card valued at $26.22 in US dollars. (2 & 6/22 — We like to be different.) We will publish three winning entries in July. Only one entry will receive the gift card though…we are starving authors too. As before, the gift card recipient will be chosen from the three winning entries by a staff game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.



Our judges are practicing up for the big day. While the judges perfect their technique, authors should moonwalk directly to their laptops and get started on an entry. Our last fiction contest produced three winners and three honorable mention awards. Those stories were published in March and may be read in our home gallery.

To submit an entry:
Entries need to be sent as a DOC attachment, preferably in Times New Roman 12 pt. Your name should NOT be on the attached document. (Blind judging. Stories will be judged on merit alone.) Authors should send an email to dave@postcardpoemsandprose.com with the words drawkcaB Fiction Contest in the subject line. Word count must be 153-194 (There we go being different again–some might even say odd.) Any entry needs to be inspired, at least loosely, by the theme “BACKWARD” and must be received before midnight in Michigan, June 22. Only ONE entry allowed per author.
