It’s simple. Above, is a striking photograph of a young girl.*

Use this photograph as inspiration to write a story.

For the next couple of weeks, we’re inviting writers to spend some time with this image – take it to work, invite it out to dinner, stare at it for as long as it takes to create something special – then write and submit a Flash Fiction piece for the chance to win £100! 

The winner will be announced on Tuesday, 6th December (Our 1st Birthday! Woop Woop!) and shortlisted stories will be featured in AFREADA in 2017.

There are no rules (OK, that’s a lie, please see submission guidelines below), there are no limits, go wherever your imagination takes you.

Good luck and we look forward to reading your work!
