DEC HORROR: <100 wds Holiday Fright

The Horror Writer's Club is hosting a contest the last day of every month leading up to Halloween. Please join one or all of the contests!

This month's December horror contest is:

HOLIDAY FRIGHT: Deck the halls with... bowels of Holly-- fla-la-la-la, muh-ha-ha-ha! Write a 100 word or less horror story about holiday horror. Any seasonal holiday is fair game for this haunt. Make it frightening and engaging, staying with the theme of the holidays and horror. Title excluded, use your own word count.

For those that need this:

- This is flash fiction, as it is axiomatic 100 words or less can only be
- No scripts, nonfiction, or poems for this one
- Reference horror and the holidays, and any temporally relevant holiday in December is appropriate
- The overarching goal is to HAVE FUN WRITING and entertain us all

Each month the Horror Writer's group will host a horror writing contest, leading up to October where we will have numerous contests and our Halloween Haunt! If you enjoy horror, whether to write or to read, PLEASE join our Horror Writer's club--it is new, and could use some love.

Happy Hauntings Everyone!

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool of 72.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Saturday, January 1, 2022.

This contest requires "blind" entries. That means your posted work will have no means to identify you when viewed. Your name and other information will not be shown. Fan notifications will not be sent for work posted in this contest. It will still be available in your portfolio and treated like all other posts. But when viewed information to identify it with you will not be shown until after the voting is completed. As a blind entry, authors should make every effort to ensure that their identity can not be determined from the post. That includes formatting of text, descriptions, title formatting and author notes.

All contest entries will be reviewed by the Contest Entry Compliance Committee. The committee will read all entries to ensure that the contest rules are being followed. If your entry is disqualified you will not be refunded the entry fees. The committee will review the entries when the deadline is reached. The voting will begin after the committee determines that all entries qualify and disqualify those that do not.

If a word count is not specified above there is no word count requirement. Recommended length is 5,000 words or less.

This contest is open to all members. Past contest winners can join the contest. A voting booth will be created shortly after the deadline is reached. At that time all participants will be contacted so they can vote.
