Microfiction Results

Thank you to everyone who entered our first BIFFY50 Microfiction competition on the theme ‘Fall’. 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.

After receiving 116 entries to the microfiction competition, judged by the excellent Emily Devane, it gives us tremendous pleasure to announce the winner and Highly Commended writers.

My News, By Ollie Barker, Yr 4 – Tricia Lowther
