This month we’re going to the dark side…by way of pulp.
That’s right, we’re aiming for a touch of pulp horror in our prose this time around. If you’re unsure what that really means, click this link, but if clicking is too much, imagine ‘Jaws’ (random as F*** when written), The Amityville Horror, and a multitude of the most disturbing words you ever saw put together over 300 pages.
Please send your stories to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline is Midnight GMT on the final day of the month.
Please allow Zero Flash the first opportunity to publish your work. Once the competition is over, feel free to publish anywhere else you like.
Do your best to format as Times New Roman, 12 points and in a Word doc please.
If you are submitting a Stand Alone entry – separate to the monthly competition, please say so in your email. Likewise, if you are submitting for the monthly competition, let us know.
Every month we will decide on the best story and make a showing of it for the world to see. We’ll tell everyone that it’s great and they should admire and praise it…and then we’ll start all over again.
If you do decide to grace us with your prose, there’s a good chance that at some point (probably a year down the line) we might use it in a ‘best of’ collection. So, be warned, by sending us your stuff, it will/might be published in an outmoded form called paper and as such, you accept this. Should this happen you will be offered the opportunity to buy the book at ‘cost’ + delivery.
Please feel free to add comments and thoughts. We’d welcome your input.
