Flash Fiction Competition Long List 2019

No comments


We have read, discussed and finally selected the 2019 STORGY Flash Fiction Competition Long List.

The standard of submissions was extremely high and you have humbled us with your words. So, if you’ve made it this far, congratulations – below you will find our long list selection of 38 stories.

The STORGY team will now continue to deliberate the long-listed stories  and decide on a shortlist of 30 stories which will be printed in our limited edition chap book – and we’ll also decide which of these fantastic stories will be awarded first, second and third prizes!

Please note that judges are continuing to consider selected stories blind so by all means shout for joy and celebrate your inclusion in the long-list (and we encourage this) but please don’t identify yourself as the author of a specific story – not yet.
