One of the most important aspects of Tortive's development in recent years has been our work with words. Since founding our #FlashFiction101 competition we have engaged with hundreds of authors, playwrights and wordsmiths from across the globe and on the back of this we have started another competition that will feature in our quarterly print journal Chiasmus.


Tortive Lit is Tortive's home for all things word-based. Here we hope to build a repository of stories, plays, competitions and support to help to develop new work and skills. 

Whether you're looking to develop your own work, or simply enjoy other people's Tortive Lit has the something for you. 


To read some of the past shortlisted and winning entries of our #FlashFiction101 competition click the link below. 

A free monthly flash fiction competition with brevity at its heart. 101 words is all you've got to tell a complete story! No more; no less. Each month has a different spotlight, theme, prompt or focus. Free to enter.

Chiasmus is a new quarterly print journal dedicated to words, stories and cultural review. The journal will launch in September 2021 and will feature the top three entries from the short story competition. Click on the button for more information on how to submit. 

We are currently developing our new work programme and are looking for playwrights who would like to showcase work. We are hoping to unveil a monthly, online 'read-through' of new work very shortly. Stay tuned for more information coming soon. We will also soon have a number of published works available to purchase from our online shop.
