Strands International Flash Fiction Competition: Open Theme
There is a free submission option available now, but they fill up fast. If you would like to avail it, you can skip the payment process and follow the steps in green letters after that.
There are TWO free submission slots available now.
Free submissions are meant for writers who can't afford the entry fees or are below the age of 25. You can also avail them when there are some practical difficulties with the payment process. We do not ask for any proof from you, because we trust your own judgement of your situation as a writer. Please do mention 'free submission' in your subject line when you send your entries.
If you are someone who would like to sponsor free submissions to specific writers, please do make payments on their behalf using the Tip Jar option and email us the names of those writers so that we can reserve their slots. If you want to keep the slots open to anyone, we will add the numbers above in blue letters. Each $12 will be enough for two free submissions. You can change the 'quantity' to add more.
Click on any of the first three buttons to submit your entry fees in your preferred currency.
The deadline is January 15, 2021.
You can pay the fees from the PayPal page. Even if you don't have a PayPal address, the page will guide you to pay using a credit card.
Note: Writers submitting from India might not be able to use PayPal for this, but they can pay via direct e-transfer to our account. Contact us at the email below for our a/c number once you have your story ready.
After sending the entry fees, you can submit your stories in a single Word file attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. See the competition page for more details.
