For the last few months of the Flash Fiction contest, I’ve been assuring you that the grand prize is going to be amazing. I believe I even used the words “trust me”. The time has finally come for the grand reveal of what, exactly, all you wonderful writers are competing for.
And trust me when I tell you, you’ll be excited.
(See, I’m asking you to trust me again. Either I’m incredibly honest, or I’m a Hollywood villain. You decide.)
Anyway, back to the subject at hand.
As you may remember, each monthly winner qualifies for an exclusive flash fiction contest in December, where they will once more write a story of 250 words or fewer. Those entries will then be posted on Writer Unboxed so that you (yes, you) can vote for the overall winner.
With no further ado, fuss, hubbub, or rigmarole, let’s get to the prizes.
Runner Up Prize
Every finalist who makes it to the December contest will win a beautiful “Edit” poster from Three Figs Villa, as kindly donated by the generous Cyd Peroni.
The winner of the 2015 WU Flash Fiction Contest will receive:
- A signed copy of Dave King‘s Self-Editing for Fiction Writers
- A signed copy of David Corbett‘s The Art of Character
- A 15-page manuscript critique by bestselling author Catherine McKenzie (double spaced, normal margins, Times New Roman 12pt font)
- A one-hour Skype lesson with Scrivener expert, Rebeca Schiller
And, last but not least,
- A free, nontransferable pass to attend the next Writer Unboxed UnConference (does not include travel or hotel expenses)
Just as a side note, the only downside to running this competition is that I’m not in the running to win this amazing prize!
So, what are you waiting for? This month’s prompt is out. The prize pack is on the table. Metaphorically speaking. There’s only one thing to do.
It’s time to get writing!
