Can you write a story about ‘Home’ … in up to 50 words?
That is the challenge set by Derby Book Festival for its 2020 Flash Fiction Writing Competition, which is launched on 24 April 2020. The Festival team is seeking submissions of stories of up to fifty words (excluding the title) on the theme of ‘Home’.
There are three age categories – 11 years and under, 12 – 17 years and 18 years and over. The winner of each category will receive a £50 book token. The entries will be judged by a panel of experts and each winning story will be illustrated and printed on Festival bookmarks. They will also appear on the Derby Book Festival website.
The closing date for the competition is 10pm on Tuesday 2 June 2020.
All entries must be submitted online via the form on their website, where you can find full details of the competition: www.derbybookfestival.co.uk/flash-fiction
