Submissions are open for the fourth Birmingham Words anthology to be titled Perfectly Formed with the only requirement being pieces are less that 300 words long.
We donâ€™t want anything slapdash or hasty. When youâ€™ve got up to an absolute maximum of 300 words (and weâ€™re going to be strict on this) you canâ€™t afford to waste them. So we donâ€™t want any flash fiction that has burst forth in a feverish moment and that is sent to us unedited, bearing all the marks of its short and traumatic birth. We want stories that are beautifully crafted, poised and, well, perfectly formed. The subject matter is open.
The deadline for submissions of 17th March. Full details are here.
The anthologies are distributed as free PDF downloads with three already available.
