100-word Microfiction Challenge

Friday, 8 May 2020, 5.00pm

The 100-word Microfiction Challenge is a competition that challenges writers around the world to create very short stories (100 words max.) based on genre, action, and word assignments in 24 hours. In the 1st Round (May 8-9, 2020), writers are placed randomly in heats and are assigned a genre, action, and word assignment.

Writers have 24 hours to craft an original 100-word story (maximum) in their assigned genre, with the assigned action taking place, and incorporating the assigned word. The judges choose a top 20 in each heat to advance to the 2nd Round (June 26-27, 2020) where writers receive new assignments and again have 24 hours to craft original stories.

Judges select the top 10 writers in each heat from the 2nd Round to advance to the Final Round of the competition taking place July 24-25, 2020 where writers will receive their final assignment of the competition. Feedback from the judges is provided for every submission and there are thousands in cash and prizes for the winners.

1st Round: May 8-9, 2020
2nd Round: June 26-27, 2020
3rd Round: July 24-25, 2020
