Short Short Fiction, or Flash Fiction Contest

Contests  /   /  By Jane Levi
Stone Soup Magazine
May 2019

For this contest, we want you to try to craft a tiny story (300 words or less!) that tells a big story or captures a big idea—or maybe just describes a single moment or a single thing in extreme and unusual detail.

This sounds easy, but it shouldn’t be! If anything, you might need more time to craft your small story because every word and phrase becomes more important.

Length: 300 words or fewer

Deadline: June 15, 11:59 p.m. (Pacific time)

Subject: Any!

Results: We will select three winners, as well as a few honorable mentions, whose names will be listed in the magazine. First place will receive $50, second place $25, third place $10.
