    Purorrelato 2019 Flash Fiction Competition

    Casa África announces the seventh flash fiction competition called Purorrelato in order to promote literary creation to encourage us to feel and think about Africa and continue to show us the different realities that will bring us nearer to the continent, far from those stereotypes that for so long have marked it.

    You may submit a maximum of three short stories. The subject is free to choose although the short stories should have some type of link to Africa. The story can take place inside or outside the continent and its degree of connection with Africa can vary from just a detail to the whole part of it.

    Each short story must have a maximum of 1,400 characters (not words).

    The short stories can be presented in any of the following languages: Spanish, English, French or Portuguese.

    There is no entry fee.


    Open to anyone of any nationality, and resident in any country, over the age of 18.


    1st Prize: 600 EUR (approx. 669 USD)
    2nd Prize: 300 EUR (approx. 334 USD)
    3rd Prize: 200 EUR (approx. 223 USD)

    The 50 best short stories, chosen by the Jury will form part of a digital publication that Casa África will publish.
