THE FAST AND THE FRIGHTENING
a scary, speed micro-fiction writing contest
in collaboration with Idaho Horror Film Festival
If your creative cauldron is bubbling with devilish ideas, or you fancy yourself the next Edgar Allen Poe, you won’t want to miss The Fast and the Frightening, a speed micro-fiction writing contest in collaboration with Idaho Horror Film Festival. Join us on Thursday, October 17th, 7pm-8:30pm at The Mode Lounge (21+).
You’ll receive a horror writing prompt and 20 minutes to concoct a sinister story of 500 words or less. We encourage bringing along a digital device, though we’ll accept pen/pencil and paper if your scrawling is legible. After the judges review the stories (assuming they don’t die of fright!) the top 3 will be awarded prizes and read their story aloud!
