To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the publication of Robinson Crusoe published on the 25 April 1719, and to complement our Crusoe300 Flash Fiction Walkshop, we are running a Crusoe300 flash fiction competition. The competition, which is looking for flash fiction taking a contemporary response to the themes of Robinson Crusoe, opens on the 1st April.
Winners will be published in Shipwrecked, a limited edition chapbook, published by Sampson Low Publishers. Winners receive 6 copies of the limited edition chapbook. The competition closes midnight GMT Tuesday 25 June and the winners will be announced on the Friday 5 July. There is an entry fee (to cover administration costs) of £3 for one flash piece or £5 for two (entrants are limited to 2 entries only). Participants in the Crusoe300 Flash Fiction Walkshop enter the competition for free.
