WE ARE NOW CLOSED TO SUBMISSIONS FOR OUR SINISTER SUMMER CAMP CHALLENGE, THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED! WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING WINNERS SOON
Okay kids! Welcome to our 2023 Summer Challenge!
This time around – we are going CAMPY – that is, we are looking for your short stories that have something do with summer camp. You remember, right? How innocent those days were, but then when the lanterns were turned down and everyone fell asleep, you held your latrine visit until the morning because who knows what lurked outside your cabin.
Your story does not need to be centered inside a summer camp necessarily but it must be an impactful element within your story.
Yes, we are inviting you to be campy and fun – or, if the desire moves you, dark, creepy and sinister. (We may actually prefer the latter).
Keep stories under 2,000 words and please include word count in email.
Must be themed around Summer Camp.
Submit your story to email@example.com.
Submission must be in the body of the email, no attachments please.
Clearly label your submission “SINISTER SUMMER CAMP CHALLENGE: Last Name: Story Title”.
You are welcome to submit a story for both the challenge and regular magazine content but please, just one challenge submission.
Your challenge entry must not be submitted elsewhere.
Challenge submission deadline is August 15, 2023 for possible inclusion in mid-August 2023 issue.
Honorable mentions will be published. Any challenge submission is your pre-approval of publication in our August 2023 Issue without additional notification to you.
One Grand Prize Winner receives $50 via PayPal.
