Announcing the Winner of our Flash Fiction Competition

Posted by Chrissey Harrison - 27th June 2015

A big thank you to all the writers who took part in our writing competition this June. The quality of the entries we received was very high indeed which made judging very difficult.

In the end we chose our favourite story to feature on The Great Escape on National Flash Fiction day. The story we felt fitted in well with The Great Escape’s site ethos of genre fiction and escapism.

So congratulations to Tom Burd for his entry Big Arm which you can now read in our Fiction section.

We’d also like to make a special mention of Anna Nazarova-Evans, whose two beautifully written stories about Armenian refugees totally blew us away. While we didn’t feel that The Great Escape was the right place for Anna’s stories, we’re quite sure they will find a good home somewhere!

We’ll be at Cardiff Independent Comic Expo today, where Chrissey will be getting into the National Flash Fiction Day spirit writing spontaneous original stories on postcards! If you’re at the convention, come and challenge her to write something for you.

You can find out about other NFFD events happening around the country on the National Flash Fiction Day website.
