Masters of Macabre 2013 Story Contest: Haunted Houses.
This is the 3rd annual (Men’s) Masters of Macabre story contest, sponsored by The HorrorAddicts.net. This is the guys opportunity to show those Wicked Women Writers that we know how to make your skin crawl and your blood turn cold as effectively as any moonlit cemetery or chainsaw carrying kid in a hockey mask.
This year’s challenge is Haunted Houses. They come in all shapes, sizes and locations with as wide a variety of ghosts, ghouls and poltergeists. Here’s your chance to walk us through the dark halls of your imagination and paint us frightening portraits to hang in the hidden chambers of our minds.
When you accept our challenge you’ll get a location and an item which relates in some way to the paranormal pest of your preference. How it all relates is up to you.
With your house, item and ghost in hand, you’ll have ten (10) minutes to give us goose bumps, nightmares and your best spooky voice. If you’re unable to record it yourself and you can’t find someone to do it for you, let me know. I know a few creepy podcasters who might help you out.
Some dates to remember:
As Soon As You Can: Send your name, e-mail address, a head shot (That’s just a picture of you. No bullets through the head, please) and a short bio, (How wonderful you are, in 50 words or less.) Send that to MMMchallenge2013@gmail.com.
A Few Days Later: We’ll send you a contract. When we get that back we can send you a location and an item. The sooner you get your stuff to me, the sooner you can start crafting your masterpiece of the macabre.
June 10, 2013: The last day to enter the contest.
July 20, 2013: The last day to send us your completed story in mp3 audio and your edited text.
August 24, 2013: My wife’s birthday, the day the stories will air and voting begins. Have your social networks, fan clubs, garden society, and old folk’s home prepped and ready to start the voting. They’ll only have 30 days, so get out there and pimp the competition and vote for their favorite story.
September 24, 2013: The last day to nag family members to vote for their favorite story.
October 5, 2013: The day one of you will revel in the glory of being crowned Master of Macabre, 2013.
If this sounds as fun to you as it did to me last year, get us your information. If you have questions, you can ask me anything by sending an email to MMMchallenge2013@gmail.com
