Welcome to our Great Eighty Challenge, we hope you enjoy it! To write a piece of flash fiction in not over, not under, but exactly eighty words.

Your submission can be an extract from a longer work; a full story with beginning, middle and end; or it can simply be a scene - it's what you do with it that we're interested in. You can submit as many pieces as you like per competition.
