Once again Ligonier Valley Writers is holding a Flash Fiction Contest that awards cash prizes and charges NO entry fee. The deadline for submissions is the stroke of midnight on August 15, 2016.
As always, authors of the winning entries will be invited to read their stories aloud at various venues during the Halloween season. Winning stories will also be published at LVW’s website. Because these are Halloween stories, topics in past years have ranged from ghosts to dragons to spooky/scary places. This year's topic is triskadekaphobia and/or – philia: a fear of or fondness for the number 13. Let your imagination run wild. Flash fiction means that the story must be less than 1,000 words long. And please, no poetry.
All six winning entries will also receive a one-year complimentary membership in Ligonier Valley Writers. This permits them to attend most LVW events free or at reduced prices.
