Title: The Loch Ness Monster vs. Ghosts in Atlantis
Opens: 10 May 2022
Closes: 15 October 2022 11:59 pm EST
Theme: How did the Loch Ness Monster end up landlocked in Scotland, becoming one of the great paranormal mysteries of our time? Is she a myth, a hoax, a trick of the eye? Or perhaps she is simply lurking there until her enemies forget, waiting for the right time to return to her home in the waters around the fabled Atlantis, where she can be reunited with her family, and take her revenge?
Little does she realize that the ghosts who banished her hundreds of years ago, along with those who have joined their ghostly order since, still keep guard over the lost city. They have dedicated themselves to the protection of Atlantis, and will stop any deemed a threat, by whatever means necessary.
Who is the villain? Who is the hero? What caused the rift all those years ago, and does it still matter to any of them? Only you know the answer…

No idea is too out there! We want stories from all sides, tales that contradict one another, unreliable narrators, and MCs who we can both love and hate. The ghosts don’t have to be FROM Atlantis, but they do need to be guarding it now. Let’s get WEIRD y’all.
