Member-Sponsored Not Safe For Trick Or Treating Horror Contest
|Oct 21, 2022
I’m looking for Flash Fiction up to 500 words that are in the horror genre for the Halloween season.
I see flash fiction as a complete but short story with a journey arc and a twist ending (twist optional). The story you write, therefore, should have a beginning, middle, and end but written in only 500 words or less. I love drabbles and they should be exactly 100 words not including the title. Indicate if you intended your story to be a drabble. Please give your story a title.
Use the photo you see in the upper left hand corner as a prompt, but a prompt is only what it is—the story you come up with is entirely your own sparked by the picture. I won’t be looking for all the elements in the photo.
No adult labels or gratuitous gore, please.
