December 20, 2014
Deadline: December 20th, 2014
Prizes: One lucky author will win a prize for best story ($15). Two-runners up will receive $10 and $5, respectively for second and third place.
Note: This is a contest issue so while winners can receive payouts, not everyone will
Shinigami Stories: Reaping the Harvest of Souls—CONTEST ISSUE. Stories about the Grim Reaper. Stories can be any genre, though horror might be the most common one concerning the God of Death. If you could craft me a shinigami story that has sci-fi or fantasy elements, that would make my inner genre-blender lover boogie. Also, consider making the reaper a woman. Neil Gaiman did and it worked wonders for him. But don’t copy his version of Death. Make it your own. Also, no “Bleach” fan-fic or fan-fic of any other previous works featuring shinigami or a death god. As this is going to be a contest issue, I won’t be accepting Poetry, Drabbles, or Microfiction for this one. I will be accepting Flash and Short Stories ONLY. I will accept reprints, as usual, if the rights have reverted back to the author. One lucky author will win a prize for best story ($15). Two-runners up will receive $10 and $5, respectively for second and third place. I’m a broke-ass college student, but I’m also an author, and I know what it’s like to not get paid for your hard work. It’s been awhile since I could afford to do a contest issue, so I’m glad I’m able to do one again. Unlike the last issue, which was a reader’s poll, I may want to have judges for this one.Also, I would like 3-6 judges for this one. You can not be a judge if you are submitting a story. I will not be judging but will be available to the judges to help in the process. I also will not submit a story for this one as that would hardly be fair. I can’t pay judges, I’m sorry, but I’m willing to help you out. Judges will be featured on a page of their own in the issue, where they’ll have a chance to advertise their wares…weblinks, links to purchase books, etc. Email me if you are interested in being a judge for this issue or if you have any other questions. Award payments will be made via Paypal, so you need a Paypal account to receive your award. Deadline December 20th, 2014.
