Welcome to our 2018 Flash Fiction Contest!

Read on for details regarding what to submit, how to submit, and what happens next.

Theme

The theme of this contest is grifts. This includes stories that are about grifts, that hint at scams or frauds or cons, or that take the theme to a more philosophical level. We welcome creativity around the theme, but submissions that are unrelated will not be considered.

Prizes

  • 1 First Prize winner will receive $40 and publication of their story by Asymmetry
  • 1 Second Prize winner will receive $20 and publication of their story by Asymmetry
  • 7 Third Prize winners will receive publication of their story by Asymmetry

Winners will be selected by Asymmetry editors.
