Indie e-Con 2018 Writing Contest
As this year's e-Con theme was genres, we focused our contest on genres.
So, instead of covers nodding to the publication process, we did genre-oriented prompts.
With a twist.
Each of the prompts below was assigned a genre. HOWEVER, the twist is, that you couldn't write your story in the assigned genre. You had to look beyond the obvious and discover the hidden stories in these prompts.
