Welcome to the Trough!

This is the repository of all thoughts, news, excitement, shoutouts and general excitement that’s going on in the world of (b)OINK. And, what better way to start off than with an awesome CONTEST!

We have a flash fiction contest that runs until August 15th. This means you have all summer to create something that will wow us.

Hang on, there’s more.

We’re also super pumped to have Kathy Fish as the guest judge. If you want to know a little more about her ideas and tips for flash fiction, check out her q&a (scroll down on the contest page).

But we’re not done yet!

There will also be prize money! 1st place will receive $100, 2nd will receive $50, and 3rd place will receive $25!

Here are the rules:

  • $5.00 to submission fee.
  • 500 words or less.
  • Please enter original work only.
  • Any theme.
  • DO NOT put your name on the piece.
  • Multiple submissions are okay.

If you have any questions at all, please message us on Twitter or Facebook.
