WriterAdvice seeks flash fiction, memoir, and creative non-fiction running 750 words or less. Enlighten, dazzle, and delight us. Finalists receive responses from all judges. Everyone receives a preliminary response from B. Lynn Goodwin. Submit to the WriterAdvice Flash Prose Contest between January 1 and April 121, 2015.


DEADLINE: April 21, 2015


JUDGES: Former prizewinners are this year’s judges. Read their pieces and biographies by clicking on the Archived Contest Entries button at www.writeradvice.com.


PRIZES: First Place earns $200; Second Place earns $100; Third Place earns $50; Honorable Mentions will also be published.




  1. Include your contact information and tell us if this is fiction or memoir in the cover letter.
  2. Since we judge these anonymously, please don’t tell us your background or where you’ve been published. If you are a finalist, we’ll ask for a bio.
  3. Include your name, contact information, title, and genre in the cover letter, but only include your title in the submission so it remains anonymous.
  4. Please double-space your submission. We recommend that you use a 14-point font that is easy to read. Times New Roman, Cambria, and Ariel all spring to mind.
  5. We’re reading these as blind submissions so put both your name and your title in your cover letter but leave them off your manuscript.


SUBMISSIONS: All entries should be submitted through Submittable.


 You may enter UP TO THREE stories, but each is a separate submission with a separate fee of $15.


Names of all winners will be announced in the summer issue of WriterAdvice, www.writeradvice.com.
