Thanks to all that entered the October Themed  Flash Competition. The theme was Jealousy and there were some very interesting takes on it. There were a few stories that really had a lot going for them bar some sloppy mistakes – tense switches and lots of typos being the main ones. Proofread!

There’s only one more competition for this year and the final theme is Endings so step away from the Christmas leftovers, chocolates and mince pies for a while this festive season to send in your stories by the 30th December deadline and you can get cash and published on the website. Enter here.
