Sharpen those pencils, fire up that laptop and get ready because we’ve got a challenge for you! FAN EXPO Canada is teaming up with the Toronto International Festival of Authors in our first ever Flash Fiction Competition!
Wait, what is a Flash Fiction Competition?
Good Question! A Flash Fiction Competition is a competition that challenges writers to create a short story (750 words max.) in 72 hours! You pick the genre and setting BUT story must include a very specific item. The catch? You won’t find out what that item is until the competition officially opens!
Thank you to all that have participated in the 2019 Flash Fiction Competition!
