Quick question, can I write a piece of flash fiction then convert it into prose for unknown memories?
It's just I think the Victorian words and unknown memories marry quite nicely. There's no rule against it that I can find, but will it be frowned upon?

I am not sure what you mean by convert. You can not enter the same thing in both contest, but they can be related in theme, chracter, setting and so on.

I mean do the flash fiction and then expand on it to make it into a short story.

So you would write your flash, submit it, then take the 250 words (or less as the case may be) and write more so that it is up to 2000 words long? I see no problem with that.
