First run in 2019 to celebrate Writers Victoria’s 30th year, Flash Fiction was a micro-fiction competition that ran every day in April. Writers Victoria provided a prompt word, based around an overall theme, and invited participants to respond with up to 30 words inspired by and/or using the prompt word. From hundreds of entries every day, a daily winner was chosen, and at the end of the month we chose an overall winner, who received a free Writers Victoria workshop place of their choosing.
The initial Flash Fiction was run in celebration of our 30th anniversary, with the subsequent years run in order to give writers stuck in lockdown and facing the challenges of a rapidly altered world a creative outlet. Flash Fiction was retired following the 2022 competition.
