Flash fiction, sudden fiction, microfiction, micro-story, short short, postcard fiction, prosetry and short short story are but a few of the terms used to describe the increasingly popular genre of the short short story. ‘One-page story’ is Fish’s preferred title, and The Fish One-Page Story Prize has been an annual event since 2004.
10 short short stories are selected each year to be published in the annual Fish Anthology. This year novelist Chris Stewart (author of Driving Over Lemons, A Parrot in the Pepper Tree, The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society and Three Ways to Capsize a Boat: An Optimist Afloat) will be put to the pin of his collar to select 10 stories from the entries - a difficult task when, if history is to repeats itself, writing quality is so high, themes so varied and styles so unique.
Quote from our website:
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. Flash Fiction is 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.
