SCI-FI-LONDON and URBANFANTASIST.COM are setting you an exciting challenge during the festival: a 48 hour flash fiction competition on a sci-fi or fantasy theme.
Each year we run a 48hr film challenge, where we give the teams a TITLE, line of DIALOGUE and a few other things to base their film on. We want you to write a short story with similar details, again in just two days!
Use #sfl48flash and follow us @scifilondon for updates.
