Seven years since the beginning of our annual international short story competition, which is the only international short story contest based in Greece, we decided to run a new international contest for flash fiction. We hope it will be as successful as our short story competition and gain the same respect and recognition on an international level whilst giving more writers the opportunity to see their work published and enjoy a holiday in Crete!

Theme of the contest: “Dreams”
First prize:
A week holiday οn the island of Crete (for 2 people)
Three prize winners: publication in anthology, handmade ceramic gift, certificate, complimentary copy of the anthology.
