WNIJ Flash Fiction Contest

Attention Short Story WritersWNIJ logo

Enter the Flash Fiction Contest

WNIJ invites you to submit an original work of short fiction based on the following prompt:

Your first sentence must describe an outrageous, inexplicable situation, like Franz Kafka’s protagonist waking up to discover he’s a giant insect.

We invited prize-winning author Molly McNett to create this prompt and to help us select the winning stories.

To enter, write a short story of approximately 500 words responding to the prompt by the contest deadline: 11:59 p.m. on Monday, September 12. The authors of the winning entries will be invited to read their story on air during Morning Edition the week of October 3, 2016.

We look forward to reading your work, and good luck.
