Flash Fiction Competition #3

This month’s flash fiction competition is based on the prompt below. Check our guidelines but the rules are:

  • Word limit 150 words with a 10-word leeway (so, 140-160 words please).
  • Please include your word count with your submission.
  • All entries to be emailed to: editor@paperswans.co.uk by the closing date (22nd June 2014 23.59 GMT). Please put FF SUBMISSION in the subject line.
  • Please let us know your twitter name (if you have one).
  • We are not easily shocked, but nothing too explicit please.

This month’s prompt must be included and is taken as part of your word count. The prompt can go anywhere in your writing but please do not change the order of the words:

‘something was missing’


If you have any questions, please leave them in the comment box.
