October/November Flash Fiction Contest

The first round of this year’s NEHS Writing Contest is open now through November 7, 2022 (please note this is an earlier deadline than originally published). Any member from an active chapter, student or Advisor, may submit original flash fiction based on this round’s theme of “six-word stories.” A six-word story is a complete story told in just six words.

All entries will be uploaded through AwardSpring. Learn more about this year’s submission and eligibility guidelines. The best flash fiction selected during each phase of the contest this year become finalists eligible for monetary awards at the end of the school year.

Please note: NEHS will contact Advisors if applicants submit writing that suggests the need for possible intervention.
