Welcome to our BeaconFlash page, home of our 500 word short story competition.
The popular competition invites 500 word stories on a new theme each month from August to May. The best three stories for each month go forward to a shortlist for final judging, with prizes for the winning authors and publication on this website for the top three stories.
Details of our 2021/22 Competition will be published shortly. In the meantime, check out the results of our 2020/21 Competition and read the first, second and third prizewinners by clicking BeaconFlash Results at the top of this page.
