The 2012 Prize is open. This is an opportunity to attempt what is one of the most difficult and rewarding tasks - to create, in a tiny fragment, a completely resolved and compelling story in 300 words or less. The Flash Fiction Stories are wonderfully entertaining to read and challenging to write, but we love it and so do the readers of our Anthology. This is another chance to get a story, however small, into this year's Fish Anthology.
The Fish Flash Fiction Prize has been an annual event since 2004. To view our catalogue of anthologies containing the winning stories from previous one-page story competitions click Fish Books.
