Lincoln Book Festival 2020, in association with the University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University, is inviting budding writers to submit their own ultra-short stories to its annual Flash Fiction Competition.
The competition aims to uncover new storytelling talent by showcasing concise, compelling creative writing within a defined topic or genre with a simple but challenging brief: the story must be precisely 50 words in length - no more, no less!
This year's Lincoln Book Festival 2020 runs from 11-16 May with with a week-long series of literary events.
There are separate competition categories for primary (Reception to Year 6), secondary (Year 7 - Year 11) and adult age groups (Year 12 upwards, no upper age limited). The prize in each age category is a £30 book voucher. The competition is open for entries now with a deadline of Friday 4th April 2020 and winners due to be announced at the Lincoln Book Festival in May.
