Announcing: The first ever #lovethetron 24hr flash fiction competition 

You might have noticed that this year, we’ve decided to do things a bit differently. In that vein of riffing our way through the year, we’ve decided to combine three of our favourite things:

  • Storytelling
  • Talking in 140 characters
  • Hamilton

So we’re running our first ever Flash Fiction Competition! We’ve already asked around and it sounds like lots of people* are simply gagging for it.

It’s a bit of an experiment so bear with us if it’s a bit weird the first time. Lots of the greatest things in life are.

So, with that caveat in mind, get ready!

The Rules:

Each time, we will give you a piece of Hamilton inspiration on the blog. It may be a picture, a character, a phrase or something else Hamilton. After the post has been published, you will have exactly 24hrs in which to send in 140-character stories to us via Twitter.

Every story must be in response to the #Flashfiction tweet that is sent out by @lovethetron. If we don’t see it, we can’t promote or include it.

Each story must contain at least one character, setting somewhere in Hamilton (doesn’t have to be real) and an action. Each story can be no longer than 140 characters. Brownie points if good defeats evil or people live happily ever after or we see the downfall of Auckland.

You can enter as many times as you like. After 24 hours, we will select the top 4 stories for people to vote on.

Ok, ready?

The First #lovethetron Flash Fiction

Deadline for entries: 8pm, 8 June 2017
