Notes:

  • All perspectives are welcome unless the prompt specifies which one we’re looking for e.g. Second person perspective preferred.
  • Unless specified, we are also open to all tenses, character gender, etc. You’re encouraged to explore.
  • Unless specified all genres are welcome except erotica. A haunted house doesn’t have to be a horror story, in fact a haunted house could simply refer to a memory or a family that has endured a tragedy. Zombie tales can be hilarious, and the word ‘zombie’ could refer to any number of things. Mysteries can find their way into any situation. Be creative, push your boundaries, have fun, write great stories.
  • We are pretty flexible with regard to story length, but please make an attempt toward reason.
