2015 already and the National Flash Fiction competition is open for entries!

This year submissions are open from 1 February – 30 April, so there is still plenty of time to polish off your last nugget, or go digging for more.

The competition is open to all New Zealand citizens and residents, and there is no theme or prompt. Only previously unpublished works can be submitted, and they must be no more than 300 words.

This year the competition is to be judged by the very excellent Owen Marshall and Fiona Kidman.

Last year SIWA did very well with our very own Sue Kingham taking out both third place in the national competition and first in the Canterbury Regional competition. Many other members were also part of the short and long lists.
