Deadline: August 25th, 2020
Payment: $5 for anything under 5000 words. $10 for anything over 5000 words.
Theme: New tales of cryptid legends
Note: Reprints welcome

For generations, stories of mythological beasts have captivated the imaginations and nightmares of cultures all around the world. From Bigfoot to the Ahool, from the Chupacabra to the Giant Squid, we want your most creative cryptid stories. Whether on land or at sea, chill us to the bone with your wild imaginations. So many cryptid legends exist across the world and maybe you have a local cryptid you want the world to explore, like the Beast of Bray Road or the Loveland Frogman. Feel free to make it scary, gory, dark, or if you so desire, throw us a curveball and provide us with a scary monster that truly has a heart of gold. The only limit is your imagination…and that it must feature a cryptid, of course!
