Welcome to Flash Dash

We love reading your writing and decided that being open for submissions a few times a year wasn't enough - so we created Flash Dash - 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 (now closed)

Enter Flash Dash to win:

First prize: £50 and publication in The Phare

Runner-up: publication in The Phare and six months' free entry to our monthly writing workshops 

Entry fee £4.00 via PayPal link at the bottom of the page.

Winners will be announced on social media and on our website on 19th August 2023.

Submission Guidelines

  • Please send in your submission before 7 August 2023. Submissions received after this date will not be read.

  • 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 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  • Unpublished pieces only please.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.

 

  • By submitting your written work to The Phare Literary Magazine you are granting us non-exclusive rights to publish in our online journal at www.thephare.com and in any The Phare print journal or anthology. We will also be granted non-exclusive archival rights to display the written work for as long as The Phare exists. Copyright remains with the author.​
