Paranormal Writing Contest

Ok I've decided to go ahead with the contest! It's open to short stories and poetry.

Here are the official rules:

Submissions need to be 2,500 words or less.
They also need to have some paranormal element. It can be something small or a major theme .
Please proof read before submitting.
By sending me your entry you are giving me permission to post your piece on the blog if it's selected.

Submissions are due April 1st, 2011 and the winner will be announced April 15.
E-mail them to paranormalpursuits@yahoo.com
Type submission into the subject line.
Please put your entry directly into the e-mail. I won't open attatchments.

The winner gets their piece posted on the blog, a little virtual badge they can post wherever they want, a link back to their site (if desired) and of course bragging rights!

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has to offer!

Any questions?

  3. Michael, hopefully no one decides to play a trick on me that day! :/

    Ryan, don't worry, it doesn't have to be the whole 2,500 words. It just shouldn't go over that amount.I only have a word limit because knowing my luck someone would decide to submit a 200,000 word piece at the last minute. 250 words works just as well for me!
