FBCW 2019 Flash Fiction Contest deadlines announced


A new flash fiction contest just for BC writers gives contestants six words to include in their entries. Entries for the Federation of British Columbia Writers 2019 Flash Fiction contest must include the words cobble,  status, woven,  wait,  avocado, and intermittent.


The 500-word maximum for each entry includes the title, said contest coordinator and FBCW board Keith Liggett. "Flash fiction needs a start, it needs a spark ... I thought I'd give people six sparks."I'm hoping to rejuvenate writers, to get them to step out of their normal box, and do something different," Liggett said. 


The contest is open to British Columbia writers only. Sign-ups via Submittable will start Sept. 1, with the final deadline at midnight, PDT on Oct. 1. The prize will be $350, and the contest will be judged by B.C. author Angie Abdou. The winner will be announced on Nov. 1, 2019. 


The Federation of BC Writers is a non-profit organization which promotes excellence and professionalism in the literary arts in British Columbia. For more information or to join, contact membership@BCwriters.ca
