The Welkin Writing Prize – Open for Entries

The Welkin Writing Prize is free-to-enter and is open to all forms of narrative prose, be that flash fiction, short-short, vignette, haibun, hermit crab, prose poem or work that sits outside such labels. As long as it’s less than 400 words and has some form of narrative thread, then anything goes (pretty much).
