New Year Flash Fiction Competition!

Send in your 200 word stories inspired by the word ALIEN

Here at Legend Press, we’re delighted to accept submissions directly from writers. We’re always on the lookout for new, exciting and unusual work, and we can’t wait to hear new stories and new voices.

Each story requires the perfect amount of time to be told – whether it’s a series of seven books that takes the world by storm, a single, complete novel, an elegant, slim novella, a pithy short story or the rapid snapshot of flash fiction, we want to read it. And to celebrate all the amazing writers out there, Legend Press is asking for flash fiction submissions.

This month the theme is ALIEN. Send us your stories – up to a maximum of 200 words – and we’ll choose our favourite to go on the blog, as well as promoting it on SM with the hashtag #LengendFlashFic and the author's twitter handle and website (if that's your bag). Every story we feature means its author can pick any book from our existing catalogue to be sent out free of charge (UK delivery only). Multiple entries are fine by us – if you send more than one story, you could win more than one book!

Send your entries to imogenharris@legend-paperbooks.co.uk before midday on 31st January 2018, with the words 'flash fiction' in the subject line. All entires are 100% anonymous and will be voted on by the whole office. The winner will appear on our website on Wednesday 7th February.

If you have a full-length manuscript that you would be interested in sending to us, please see our submission guidelines.
