It is my pleasure to spread the word again for Inkitt. They have another contest for March – why not enter?

Running Poster

The contest begins on March 3rd and ends on March 31st. The theme this month is “Running Scared: The Most Terrifying Tale Ever Told” (though writers are not required to have this line anywhere in their story – anything horror goes!). Here are the details:

Write a horror story that will have people running for cover! Inkitt, a free platform for writers to cultivate ideas and watch their stories grow, is holding their second horror writing contest this month! Inkitt is a place where writers and readers collaborate, giving each other feedback and improving their work. Inkitt wants to help writers get the exposure they deserve and the publishing deals they covet without suffering the frustrations and bias of traditional printing and self- publishing.

The theme of Inkitt’s March horror contest is “Running Scared: The Most Terrifying Tale Ever Told.” In the tradition of classic horror flicks and monster movies, they want the freakiest, flashiest fables you can come up with. Make them scream!

Inkitt is accepting all frightening fiction up to 15,000 words. The contest opens on March 3rd and closes on March 31st . It’s free to enter , and you’ll retain all rights to any work submitted. By collecting the most community votes, the top 10% of entries will be bumped into judging by Inkitt’s guest judges (horror authors J.D. Horn , Armand Rosamilia , and J. Thorn ). They’re pretty unshakeable guys, so pull out all the stops to get them quaking in their boots!

Running prizes

Win and you’ll receive a petrifying prize package, including Amazon gift cards and Inkitt custom mugs. The first place winner will also get a custom poster spotlighting their story! Readers, be on your toes, too: there’s an Amazon gift card up for grabs for one lucky reviewer!

Got gore on your mind and fear in your heart? Enter the contest now at http://www.inkitt.com/runningscared for all the (literal) guts and glory!

Good luck!

panoramaInkitt’s “Darkest Place” Horror Contest, starting 2nd Feb 2015

What is Inkitt?

Inkitt is a free platform for writers to cultivate ideas and watch their stories grow. On our site, users collaborate with fellow writers and readers to give each other feedback and improve their work. Our vision is to help writers get the exposure they deserve and the publishing deals they covet without having to jump through the fiery hoops of traditional publishing, or wade in the shark-infested waters of self-publishing.

What is the theme of the horror contest?

“You are in the darkest place in the world.” (This theme can be interpreted literally or figuratively.) We want writers who will submit their blood-curdlers, spine-tinglers, skin-crawlers, and hair-raisers; writers who will make it their duty to scare and shock their readers; writers who can really take us to the darkest place in the world.

What are the guidelines?

It’s all about fiction: flashes and shorts up to 10,000 words, written from any point of view. Entries must be posted on the Inkitt contest page to be considered eligible.

The contest opens on February 2nd and closes on February 28th. The contest is completely free to enter, and authors will retain all rights to any and all work submitted in the contest.

What are the prizes?

All entrants will have the chance to show their work to a growing community of authors and readers hungry for high-quality fiction and win the following prizes:

1st Prize

$25 Amazon gift card, Inkitt custom mug, Inkitt custom notebook, custom cover design for the Inkitt story of their choice (created by Inkitt’s designer).
