JPI FLASH CONTEST
Here are the rules for our first flash fiction contest.
It must be a fiction short story, not an essay or poem.
500 words maximum.
We want a feel-good fantasy story with a present day setting.
We are not overly fond of S & S or animals living in little animal villages, acting and
thinking like humans, and dressing in clothing. If your story contains these elements, the
story has to be VERY entertaining.
No current politics or religious opinions in the story, we are not a soapbox.
Opening The Ides Of March. March 15. Be(a)ware the date. Bad day for
ancient Roman politicians but good for writing.
Closing Tax Day April 15 11:59 EST . A good day to meet deadlines.
Format: Standard manuscript format. If you don't know what that is look up Shunn Format.
If it is not in proper format it will not be read.
Word .doc and .docx. NOTHING ELSE.
Subject line must have Contest: Title - author's last name.
Winning story and up to 4 honorable mentions will be published in the May
newsletter and on our Website. You are agreeing to publication by entering.
Winning story will receive $5.00 prize via Paypal.
Stories that place may be published in a contest anthology at a future date. Additional
payment may be provided then.
