Good afternoon, ladles and jelly spoons!
Last week, I showed off a 100-word horror story that won a contest I put up on Facebook. I asked for the best flash fiction someone could come up with and after receiving a small collection of entries, the winner was announced and it is quite a spine-tingling story!
This time around, let’s up the ante!
I am looking for your best 250-word horror story. No restrictions on genre- I just want the creepiest and most entertaining story you can come up with!
The contest will run until October 28th at midnight central time, with the winner announced on October 30th!
What does the winner get?!
The winner will receive Sanitarium Magazine, issue #32, featuring my short story ‘Sick Love Potion’ as well as Mangled Matters’ interview spotlight author Gwendolyn Kiste‘s ‘Flesh or Fantasy’ and an assorted scare package that will feature so much awesome indie horror goodness, your brain will explode!
The second-place story writer will receive a copy of Sanitarium issue #32
The third-place story writer will receive an evil envelope loaded with good old fashioned creepy weirdness!
