COMPETITION: Scrolls Flash Fiction Challenge

FlashThe Scrolls podcast is undergoing a bit of a transformation at the moment here on the Geek Syndicate Network.  We’re looking to make things more focused and more interactive.

Back in August 2012 we put out an episode called A Little Bit Of Flash in which we discussed the short story form known as Flash Fiction.  If you haven’t yet heard that particular episode, we’d encourage you to do so, because a Flash Fiction competition will now form a regular part of the Scrolls format.

Each month we’ll be reading out the best three entries, announcing the winner and setting the challenge for the next episode.  The competition is open to all and the rules couldn’t be simpler…

All you need to do is write an original story/poem in the broad genres of fantasy, science fiction or horror.  The word limit is just 100, but your imagination can be boundless.  To help inspire you, we’ll give you 4 words that you must use (in whatever context you see fit).  The rest are up to you.

For the first competition your words are:

Thrashing, Charged, Flag and Bone

Hope they stir your creative juices.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Please e-mail your entries to us at [email protected] by 8:30 pm (GMT) on Sunday 14th April 2013.  You can post any follow up questions on the Comments section below.  I’ll keep an eye out.

Note: We will be posting the text of the top three stories on the Geek Syndicate website each month, as well as reading them out on the podcast.  Full credit will be given to the authors.  At this time we have no intention to publish these works of Flash fiction for profit.  If such a venture becomes viable and desirable in the future then full permission will be sought of the authors before we include their work.
