All Hallows Flash Fiction Competition

As the start of what I am hoping will become an annual tradition, I am now inviting submissions for the All Hallows Flash Fiction competition. The rules and requirements are simple: Write a short story revolving around the Halloween season (I doubt that requires much in the way of elaboration – witches, ghosts, goblins, trick r’ treat…you know the deal), which does not exceed 500 words. This latter rule is a fairly strict one. Sure, I’ll allow 501 words, but much beyond that is pushing it. The word count does not include titles and bylines. Send your submissions to kealan@kealanpatrickburke.com with “AHFFC Submission: Story Title – Your Name” in the subject line. You can include your story in the body of the email or as a Rich Text attachment in Word.

Although the theme suggests horror, there are no restrictions on genre. The focus will be on quality of writing .

In addition to bragging rights, the winning entry will receive ten cents a word and publication on my website http://www.kealanpatrickburke.com, in additional to the professional credit and a signed copy of my next book.

I will accept submissions until November 6th.

Happy Halloween! Now get to writing!

  2. Todd: The deadline was midnight last night, but some submissions are still trickling in, so if you’re interested in submitting, I could give you a couple of hours.
