We are hosting a number of contests and giveaways over at DarkMedia City for Halloween, and this Friday starts our Halloween Short Fiction & Poetry Contest. For over a year and a half our founding members, Wendy Howard, Blaze McRob and Sue Mydliak have hosted Friday Frights, a weekly literary event for members of DarkMedia City.
"Writers contribute stories every Friday based on a weekly prompt. Readers enjoy the stories and vote for their favorites. Readers' choices published the following month in Dark Media Online Magazine."
Let your creative side come out and write a short fiction piece or poem with a Halloween theme. Post it in the Friday Frights group and you're entered to win a gift card and publication in our first Halloween anthology. Below are all the details to enter.
Entry Guidelines: Please follow these guidelines for your short fiction and poems.
- Entries may be short stories or poems.
- Stories and poems must be of a Halloween theme.
- Acceptable length for short fiction between 1000 and 3000 words. 500 words acceptable for poems.
- Stories must be posted in the Friday Frights group between October 1st through October 31st and preferably on Fridays.
Prizes: Between 10-15 entries will be chosen for our first Halloween anthology. Winners will receive a $10 gift certificate to the bookstore of their choice as payment for their stories.
