Microfiction Results

Thank you to everyone who entered our second BIFFY50 Microfiction competition on the theme ‘Beginnings’. We received some brilliant entries and equally important, a wonderful selection of Flash Fiction recommendations. The BIFFY50 project is all about supporting, encouraging, and celebrating Flash Fiction, so we were delighted to see such wonderful engagement online.

Judged by the wonderful Damhnait Monaghan, it gives us tremendous pleasure to announce the winner and Highly Commended writers.


Tipping Point – Alison Woodhouse


Highly Commended

My Dog Hasn’t Shit in Days – Sara Hills

Walking on Eggshells – Sharon Telfer


Thank you again to all our writers and our judge. The winning pieces will be published next week. In the meantime, please to check out more of our BIFFY50 project, read last year’s selection, and follow the editorial team on Twitter.
