I’ve been submitting to the Furious Fiction contests for 3 years now. I was once long-listed (for a short then published in FFM) but today my story went up on the shortlist and was actually showcased on the site!
It’s less than 500 words. Check it, and the winning stories, out here: https://www.writerscentre.com.au/blog/furious-fiction-december-2023-story-showcase/
Mine is the 12th story down. Let me know how you think I handled the prompt!
