Tuesday, 6. Jun 2017 - Flash Fiction Competition


This is a members-only competition. Bring along a printed story of not more that 250 words. It must have a title, although this is not part of the word count. Stories will be read aloud anonymously by a single reader to ensure a uniformity of delivery. Members will then cast votes to determine the winner. The prize is a box of chocolates.



The e-book with the  winning entries from the 2017 Cambridge Writers Short Story competition is now available on Amazon.

The short stories are by Huguette Chatterton, Will Tate, Les Brookes, Catherine Campbell, Catherine Brierley and Angela Wray.

Annabel Lee provided the cover art.
