Scare Everyone: SMM 2017 Horror Writing Contest

Boo! Sharpen your scythe and put on that werewolf mask—SMM is celebrating Halloween.

!!** SMM 2017 Halloween Writing Contest **!!  Stitch together a horror story, add a spark of electricity, and then watch your dark creation rise from the dead. If that sounds like fun, dip your raven quill inside a nearby bloodwell. Try not to make a mess: the top 3 winners receive a cash prize!

  • Write a bite-sized horror story (or poem): Scribble down a story about a rude poltergeist, or perhaps write about a masked maniac who has a morbid sense of fashion, like wearing people’s faces. Keep it dark…keep it cool…keep it bloody! Don’t feel possessed to write a horror story? Don’t get your tail in a bunch—write a poem about a pumpkin who carves people, or choose your own Halloween inspired topic.
  • All stories (or poems) will be published on SMM.
  • 3 Random winners receive cash prizes.
  • SMM Halloween Horror Writing Contest ends October 15, 2017.
  • $5 Entry Fee
