Fish Publishing Flash Fiction Competition Now Open

This is an opportunity to attempt what is one of the most difficult and rewarding tasks – to create, in a tiny fragment, a completely resolved and compelling story in 300 words or less. The Flash Fiction Stories are wonderfully entertaining to read and challenging to write, but we love it and so do the readers of our Anthology. This is another chance to get a story, however small, into this year’s Fish Anthology.

Closing date: 20 March 2012
Results: 30 April 2012

Entry fee €14/€8 for subsequent entries.

Prize: The winner and nine runners up will be published in the 2012 Fish Anthology.

First Prize – €1,000 plus publication in the 2012 Fish Anthology.

Nine runners-up will be published in the Anthology and will each receive plus five complementary copies of the Anthology.

All winning authors will be invited to the launch of the 2012 Fish Anthology. This will take place during the West Cork Literary Festival in July.

Judge: Michael Collins is the judge of the 2012 Prize. He is the acclaimed author of eight books, including novels and short stories which have been translated into seventeen languages. His work has garnered numerous awards, including Irish Novel of the Year along with being shortlisted for both The Man Booker Prize andImpac Prize.
