To celebrate our upcoming China issue, we are holding a similarly-themed flash fiction competition with Sheffield University’s Confucius Institute and School of East Asian Studies.

The theme is “China”. Deadline: 3 October. The competition is open to all and each entrant is entitled to submit only one story of no more than 300 words to [email protected].

The winner will receive £200, be published online at Litro, and have the chance to attend a short course in Chinese language at the Sheffield Confucius Institute. Runners-up will receive £100 and £50 respectively.

Confucius Institutes comprise a global network set up with the backing of the Chinese Ministry of Education to promote Chinese language and culture.

    HI
    Do you need a cover letter? Should the name and details of the writer appear with the story or on a separate sheet?

    Thank you

      A cover letter isn’t necessary. Just include your full name and other means of contact (if you’d like) in your email. We’ll have your email address anyway when you send in your submission.

      Yes, the competition is international but the prize—a short course in the Chinese language—is at the Sheffield Confucius Institute. We would not be able to cover any travel costs for the winner to attend the classes.

    Hi! I also was wondering when the winners will be posted for the China FF award. I know that it says they will be posted on November 13th, but I believe that date has passed. Thanks!
