Flash fiction competition – and inspiration

Following on from Sophie’s flash fiction pieces earlier this week, here are details of a Flash Fiction competition, from Fish Publishing. This is one of the biggest prize catches for this short brand of fiction – but there is an entry fee.

The word limit is a cute little 300 words, and the closing date is the end of the month: 28 February. Enter here.

And if you’re looking for inspiration, how about Lydia Davis? The Man Booker Prize-winning author was writing long before the ‘flash fiction’ tag became common currency, but it fits anyway. Read some of her stories online here and here and read a Paris Review interview with her here.
