Enjoying the 250 word Microfiction Challenge. 

I was checking out the other challenges. 

Ran across this year's short story challenge. That looks like fun, just wondered if there'll be one in 2021. 

Thanks!

 I wonder if they will move it back (forward?) though, as they already have r3 of Short Screenpplay and r2 of micro in January.

Round 1 is usually around 25th January, so most likely 22nd for 2021 :)

Right, but that makes 3 weekends of events in one month.

I ended up not submitting for the first round of SSC last year - first time ever not making the comp deadline. I am so ready to make up for it this time.

It's open now, but I hadn't realised it was $48. I've never complained about the entry fees before, but that seems a bit steep when you're only guaranteed one challenge.

I got the notification too. Almost €40 is too steep for writing in two challenges (FF). I've done it once, not again. Money is tight for everyone. A reduction would be nice in view of how many are struggling at the moment. I know I got a few dollars off for posting on twitter the last time. It still made a dent though.

I think with the longer story the price for all the judging goes up. It just takes the judges a lot longer to look at each piece and they have to keep the judges interested in doing the job. We get 2,500 words this time.
