Taking Submissions: Monster Brawl!

May 1, 2016


Deadline: May 1st, 2016
Payment: $25usd and a contributor’s copy

It’s time to let the monsters loose!

We’re looking for stories of monsters, either classical or spawned from your own imagination, fighting other monsters. Make the scale as grand or as simple as you like, however there must be a clear winner at the end – one of your creatures must die!

Nothing says you have to pit a single monster against another. Get creative, make this a fight for the ages! Go campy or serious; just make sure you’re not infringing on the copyright or trademark of others. And please, no fan fiction that points directly to a specific pre-defined trope. A descendant of Van Helsing versus a werewolf or a vampire won’t make the cut for this one.

It’s time to get your game face on and craft a tale worthy of a Monster Brawl!
