A Twist of Reality
Flash Fiction Competition for Shoreline of Infinity Readers 2019
Reality is a problem here at Shoreline of Infinity. This year we’re looking for short tales which tweak reality. Your
story could be set in the past, present or future, here on Earth, out there in space, or in another dimension entirely.
Your story will bend your readers’ minds, question their own perceptions. Scary, questioning, humourous, philosophical, we don’t mind – it’s your reality after all.
£50 for the winning story plus 1 year digital subscription to Shoreline of Infinity. Two runners-up will receive 1 year digital subscription to Shoreline of Infinity.
The top three stories will be published in Shoreline of Infinity – all three finalists will receive a print copy of this edition.
Maximum 1,000 words.
Maximum 2 stories per submitter.
The story must not be previously published.
Deadline for entries: midnight (UK time) 15th September 2019.
There’s no entry fee, but on the submission entry form you will be asked for a certain word from issue 15 of Shoreline of Infinity as your key, hence: competition for Shoreline of Infinity Readers.
You can order or download a copy of Shoreline of Infinity 15 here.
Submissions will be open later here in the summer. Our judging panel (details to be confirmed) will not begin work until after the deadline, so use the time to polish that tale ’til it shines.
