Calling All Creative Writers: We Need You!


As you may or may not have noticed it is no longer February however as we begin to wrap up this term you should know that our Flash Fiction February challenge is still on-going. We plan to compile an anthology of all the stories following the end of exams however in the meantime if you could please find some time to do the odd submission we would be eternally grateful.

Here are a list of the dates/prompts which have not been written on at all and are in dire need of some creative flourishes

20- connect, artificial, honour
21- theory, oranges, (picture of sheet music)
22- courtesan, horoscope, (painting of waterfall women)
23- ice-cream, banned, runaway
25- 1945, exhibit, (picture of Cleopatra)
26- lion, gravity, look
29- liminal, journey, (sound clip: Aphex Twin- Avril 14th)


And these are the dates/prompts which have only received one submission so far and could use a bit of tlc:

12- havoc, moonlight, summon
14- fortress, message, (picture of St. Valentine)                                                                               16- carrion, laces, “I am—yet what I am none cares or knows…”- John Clare
17- follow, rain, “Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you.”- Friedrich Nietzsche
18 –prisoner, arm, (painting of women on castle wall)
19- return, satisfaction, (signpost “La Belle Place)
24- erase, counter, (picture of hourglass and roses)
27- prepare, nowhere, (picture “It’s all lies darling”)
