Flash Fiction Contest

In conjunction with Thurston Howl Publications, Oxfurred Comma will be running a Flash Fiction Contest with the winner receiving $25.00! All stories that follow our guidelines will also be collected within an e-book with runner ups receiving a free copy.  This e-book will also be distributed free to the public upon publishing: neither the Furry Writers's Guild nor Thurston Howl Publications will be profiting off of the authors' works.

We will be accepting one piece of Flash Fiction per entrant. Our definition of Flash Fiction is a fictional story written in 500 words or less. The title does not count towards the word count. There is no theme nor genre the submissions must fall under. Our only requirements are that the story is 500 words or less and is non-erotic. We want to keep things PG-13 within reason. We encourage everyone to submit, especially BIPOC, disabled, trans, or any other marginalized authors.  

All of the stories will be read during a special convention panel. Winners will be chosen by a panel of three judges including:

  • Linnea Capps - President of the Furry Writers' Guild
  • Cedric Bacon - Owner of Thurston Howl Press
  • Madison Scott-Clary - Owner of Hybrid Ink

Submissions are now closed. Join us for the Flash Fiction Competition panel to see the winners!
