Are you ready for a flash fiction challenge? 

(406) is Montana’s area code, and for our inaugural flash fiction contest, we challenge you to write a piece of short fiction that: 

1) is exactly 406 words (not counting the title), and 

2) that includes the word “Montana” somewhere in the piece. 

As long as you adhere to the above rules, you can take the story on any tangent you like.  Please review our submission guidelines to ensure that your story is considered. One entry per person, please. No gratuitous sex or violence. 

Update: We have extended the submission deadline for the contest. The new deadline is now September 2, 2018, and the winning stories will be featured in Issue 3. Contest entry is $10. 

The following monetary prizes will be given to the top 3 stories. 

1st place = $125 + one hardcopy of Issue 2

2nd place = $75 + one hardcopy of Issue 2

3rd place = $25 + one hardcopy of Issue 2

The stories will be published in Issue 3 of Montana Mouthful, which comes out during autumn 2018.  

Thank you and good luck from the Montana Mouthful editing team.
