Welcome to the Flash Dash Prize
We love reading your writing and decided that being open for submissions a few times a year wasn't enough - so we created the Flash Dash Prize - a flash fiction competition with a difference. It doesn't have a regular slot in our publishing calendar but will magically pop up every now again, but you'd better be quick submissions are only open for 4 weeks.
Submissions open 2nd February
Enter Flash Dash Prize to win:
First prize: £250 and publication in The Phare
Runner-up: £50 and publication in The Phare
Entry fee £5.00 via PayPal link at the bottom of the page.
Winners will be announced on social media and on our website on 23rd March 2024.
Before submitting, please read an issue of The Phare so you're aware of the type of work we publish.
Send one piece of flash fiction up to 500 words. Use a sensible font, 12 point. Double-spaced. Please do not indent new paras or dialogue - just add appropriate line breaks. Send as a word document and not a pdf attachment.
In the subject box, type Flash Dash Prize plus the title of the piece.
In the body of the email please include a third person author’s bio of no more than 75 words with any social media or personal website links
On each piece please type your name and email address.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please notify us if your story has been accepted elsewhere.
Unpublished pieces only please.
We may suggest a few minor edits before publication.
There are a few things that will turn the The Phare's lights out; overtly transgressive, gratuitous violence and/or sex, religious intolerance, anything homophobic or racist. And sorry, we’re not the right place for YA or children’s literature.
