Call for Submissions
Drabble Stories—100 Word Fiction: Science fiction, fantasy, or horror stories of exactly 100 words in length. Genre-blenders are given extra extra chocolate frosting points. That’s all there is to this one. UPDATE: Deadline EXTENDED to April 28th, 2015.
Mark My Words: Prophesy, Signs, and Portents. Drabbles (100 words), Micro-Fiction (101-750 words), Flash (751-1000 words), Short Stories (1001-2500 words), and Poetry (up to 50 lines). Weird tales of seers predicting horrific death, soothsayers on an outer galaxy planet predicting dire ends for their world, or kids playing with fate…their hands on the Ouija board. Not all fortunes are good. The best story here would be to give me a prophesy that sounds good to the hearer or client of the psychic, but ends up unexpectedly bad. Stories about seers or ESPers who demonstrate their abilities in strange ways would be wonderful. A tarot reader who uses unusual, or previously unknown types of tarot cards would also make an interesting story. Also, the prophesies in your stories don’t necessarily have to come true, but in that case, you better wow me with whatever transpires instead. Serious or humorous…chilling or otherworldly; give me thrills and chills, and something different. UPDATE: Deadline extended to June 30th, 2015.
