Pet Flash Fiction Contest

Pet Flash Fiction Contest

Enter the Contest

Pet Flash Fiction Contest! Grand prize of $250.

Dogs, cats, parrots, gerbils, hamsters, iguanas, etc. The list of pets could go on and on. The challenge of this contest is to write a true story about a pet in 300 words or fewer. The story can be funny, silly, scary, sad, or any other adjective as long as it involves a pet. And to make it extra interesting, include a picture of the pet in the story, if you can.


Remember, the challenge of flash fiction is to create a thought-provoking story within the tight word constraints of the writing form. Good luck and have fun!

The story can be any genre as long as it is based on the picture.
