The 2016 Flash Fiction and Short Story competitions (Round Two) is open from July 1 – Nov 30. Early entrants have the chance to be published online as monthly finalists.
Field of Words runs international writing competitions in the categories of short fiction and flash fiction. All entrants must be aged 18 and over. Both categories offer cash prizes for the winner and runner-up.
The names and works of competition winners and runners up will be published on our Home page. The names and works of all monthly finalists will be published on either our Short Story Competition Finalists page, or our Flash Fiction Competition Finalists page. The announcement of finalists is dependent upon the quality of work submitted. If stories do not meet the high standard expected of a competition finalist, then no finalists will be chosen for that month.
See the Short Story Submissions page or the Flash Fiction Submissions page for more information about the Field of Words writing competitions, including entry fees, rules and guidelines. See the Critiquing and Editing Services page for more information about how we can help you further develop your writing skills.
