Flash Fiction Contest #4!


Hi all! Ready for another flash fiction contest?

The challenge is a flash fiction story based on this prompt:


Why does this man have a cat in his beard? Is it really a cat? Is it a gift for a foreign leader? Is it a futuristic weapon? Is he a wizard who carries his familiar in his powerful facial hair? Only you can decide.

Here are the rules:

  • Keep your word count between 400-500
  • The story can be written in any genre.
  • Please post on your blog and link back to it in the comments.
  • If you do not have a blog, you may send it to us as a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file at: shortstory.flashfictionsociety(at)gmail(dot)com.
  • Leave your Twitter handle at the end of the post so we can notify you via Twitter (and promote you) if you win.

Deadline is 11:59 PM Central Time (Chicago, USA) 11/7/2014!

Prize is an author interview to be featured on the site.

Looking forward to reading your entries!
