Photo Flash Challenge #2


Challenge: Write a short story based on the photo provided. It must be no more than 300 words (excluding the title, and fewer words is fine). You can write on any theme/genre but no children’s stories and nothing explicit please.

Send your entries to by midnight on Sunday, 13th May.  Include your story entry, any social media details you wish to share and a brief author bio in the body of the email.  One entry will be accepted per person.

Finalists: Up to five finalists will be selected and made available for public vote on Monday, 21st May.

Voting will be open for one week (the last vote to be counted must be posted by midnight on Sunday, 27th May).  Anyone signed up to Retreat West will be able to vote by leaving a comment with the title of their favourite story.

Prize:  The overall winner will be announced on Tuesday, 29th May and will receive one free entry into a Quarterly Themed Flash Competition, in addition to online publication on the Retreat West website.

We plan to collect together the winning stories of various Photo Flash Challenges in a “Hall of Fame” section at a future date.
