In the first of a series, I’m pleased to announce the July Fiction Vignettes Contest. The rules of this contest are quite simple: write a piece of flash fiction (a vignette) about the image provided in these materials. This month, we will be inspired by an amazing render done by JetFreak-7. The assignment is to create a small piece of fiction inspired by this image. It doesn’t have to be a description of the image, per se, but could be the events that led up to it, the thoughts of someone related to it, or anything else, as long as it ties back to the image!


  • Entries must be submitted directly into the submission box.
  • Entries may be no more than 300 words long.
  • Entries should reference the image being used for the contest.
  • Entries will be assessed based primarily on style, relation to the image, and creativity, with spelling and grammar being used for tie-breaking purposes.
