SNAPline Flash Fiction Contest

SNAPline invites you to submit a story of 500 words (or less) to our 2020 Flash Fiction Contest, with the winner and runner-up to be published in our last issue of the year. We want encapsulated narratives that give us a vivid dose of the unexpected with words that are few yet ripe.

Your entry must:

  1. take Daniel Evan’s print Pauca Sed Matura (the image on the left) as a starting point
  2. address the question, “Where do we go from here?”

Prizes

1st place: $150 Honorarium, Publication in 2020.3 issue, and 1 year SNAPline Subscription (postage paid within Canada only).

2nd place: $75 Honorarium, Publication in 2020.3 issue, and 1 year SNAPline Subscription (postage paid within Canada only).

Shortlist: Publication on the SNAPline page.

Every contestant (who gives us their address): A free copy of SNAPline 2020.3 in the mail.
