HISSAC Highlands and Islands Short Story Association and Writing Competition

Flash Fiction Long List 2015

This is the first year we have held a Flash Fiction Competition, and the judges have been staggered by the variety and complexity of the entries we've received. The ability of people to create stories in under 500 words is truly impressive, and we will certainly be holding an Annual Flash Fiction Competition to run in tandem with our Short Story Competition in future.

Thank you to all our entrants.
It has been a pleasure to read your work.

The Short List will be posted at the end of September and the winner announced on November 1st.
