Here is a contest named after a famous American author, a Nobel laureate, John Stienbeck, from the twentieth century.
Entries of upto 5000 words can fetch a prize of $1000 and publication in the prestigious Reed magazine, California’s oldest literary journal.
Here is a UK- based flash fiction contest where you can choose your entry fee.
They say: “We operate a choose your own entry fee system. The suggested entry fee is £7 per entry (£6 per entry for two, or £5 per entry for three or more), but if that’s prohibitive, just pay what you can afford. If you’d like to support a writer who can’t afford the full fee, why not add a pound or two?”
The contest ends 30 th November, 2019.
