HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE

We have an especially fun Halloween Challenge for you this year! In our next issue, we will be publishing the finest short stories, 2,000 words and under, that have an old-fashioned Halloween theme. What does that mean exactly? Since our 2020 Halloween will be scary enough with political divisiveness and invisible germs, let’s rewind time a bit and go back to an earlier era when Halloween was truly creepy. Any story with an element of Halloweens-of-the-past will be considered. How do you do it? You’re writers, you will find a way!

Grand Prize Winner will receive $50 USD and Honorable Mentions will be published.
