Inkitt's March 2015 Horror Writing Contest
« on: March 03, 2015, 04:30:51 AM »
The Inkitt writing website is holding another horror writing contest. Details from their press release are copied below:

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!

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 for all the (literal) guts and glory!

I would just add that, because this contest is judged on community votes initially, it is advisable to enter early to give yourself the best chance of success.

Good luck!

Nick  :)
