Shortlist: Micro Fiction Writing Competition Round 1

Micro Fiction writing competition

*UPDATE: Round 5 has begun. Details HERE!*


Hello all.

Thank you so much to those who participated in our very first micro fiction writing competition. It was so exciting to read all the awesome stories that came in from so many talented writers. It was very hard to settle on just 10 stories for our shortlist but we did it and we are very happy to announce the list of 10 stories and their authors below.

I know I said that we would be announcing the short-list and the winners at the same time, but due to life circumstances, we need a little more time to organise all the details that go with that, but do not worry, we will not keep you on the edge of your seats for too long and will have the winners announced within the next few days. If your story appears in the shortlist you will receive an email from us soon as well.
