Flash Fiction Contest

Oxfurred Comma Flash Fiction Collection 2021 Is Now Available To Download For Free!

In conjunction with Thurston Howl Publications, Oxfurred Comma will again 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, which will be distributed for free download after the competition.  This e-book will also be distributed free to the public upon publishing: neither the Furry Writers' 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 genre the submissions must fall under, though we have a theme of HOPE for this competition. Authors may choose their own interpretation of the theme, and do not need to include any justification or reasoning for how their submission fits in the theme. 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.  

Some of these stories will be read during a special convention panel. Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges.

Please send all submissions to the FWG email, with the words Flash Fiction included in the topic.

The deadline for submissions is Thursday 15th October 2022.
