To celebrate the new year and the launch of Litro‘s new Membership Platform, we are partnering with Penguin Books to bring you a very special flash fiction competition.
Our February theme for the magazine is Sex, so as a counterpoint to all that romance (well, presumably), our challenge to you is to write a piece of short fiction from the prompt:
“This is not love…”
Entries must be no more than 1,000 words long, and should not have been previously published anywhere, in print or online. The deadline for entries is 7 February, and the winning story will be announced on the Litro website on 14 February.
The winner and the two runners-up will have their stories published on the Litro website as well, while the overall winner will also receive three beautiful Clothbound Classics editions of Alice in Wonderland, Hard Times and Bleak House, kindly supplied by Penguin (see right). They’re so lovely we were tempted to just keep them for ourselves…
Want to enter? Submit your story here.

Hi, does the prompt need to be kept in the final story?
Hi, no, the story doesn’t need to contain the prompt.
