Indie e-Con 2018 Writing Contest
As this year's e-Con theme is genres, it is appropriate that we focus our contest on genres this year.
So, instead of covers nodding to the publication process, we're doing genre-oriented prompts.
With a twist.
Each of the prompts below have been assigned a genre. HOWEVER, the twist is, you CAN'T write your story in the assigned genre. You have to look beyond the obvious and discover the hidden stories in these prompts.
Submissions are to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject line should be "Your Title" - Not a (the genre that your prompt cannot be written in).
Stories should be attached as a .doc or .docx file. Include your (pen)name, age, and the genre that you chose to write in within the email body.
Stories should be between 1,000 and 5,000 words.
You may submit up to three stories, but each has to be from a unique prompt.
Contest Submission deadline is May 1st.
Winners will be announced on May 29th.
