Once again, it’s time to celebrate the anniversary of Project Gutenberg being unleashed on the world on 1st December.
The aim of Project Gutenberg is to help people access books that they might not otherwise be able to get hold of. This can get a bit tricky because of copyright issues, but in some ways it becomes easier, because there are some fantastic books that are now out of copyright which would get lost forever if it weren’t for PG.
For this month’s #FlashFiction prompt, head on over by clicking to Project Gutenberg, trying not to get distracted by the 50,000 or so books on the site! Take a look at the Recent Books section and pick one that you like the look of – the title of the book is the title/prompt of your story.
Tell us you tale – any style any genre, just nothing NSFW.
Word limit: 500-750 words
Deadline : Friday 6th December @ 2pm GMT
Don’t forgot, if you miss the deadline, you can always post your story to our #TortoiseFlashFiction page
