The Flash Fiction challenges in Issue 1 & 2 of Firewords Quarterly were a great success. Issue 1 saw us publish four challenge winners. The quality of the submissions for issue 2 took us completely by surprise and we ended up publishing six winning entries. In no particular order the winning entries were:
The Fall by J. T. Harrell
Seven Minutes in Heaven by Richard B. Knight
The Right Words by Vicky Walker
Lost in a Familiar Place by David Wiley
The Rink by Andrew Patch
My Evil Twin by Alison Wassell
Submissions are open for Issue 3 along with a new flash fiction challenge. If anyone is interested here's the prompt:
"She regretted it instantly, but it was too late."
The rules are simple. 400 words max. The story must contain, or be inspired by the above prompt. The all important deadline is Friday 3rd October. What do you win? Publication and a complimentary print copy of the magazine. What have you got to lose? At the very least you'll get feedback on your entry.
Don't forget that we're also on the lookout for quality poetry and fiction. Full details can be found here: http://www.firewords.co.uk/submit/
Get submitting & Good Luck.
M J Wolfson - That's me.
