This contest has officially closed…
A HUGE thank you to all who entered, who read and who participated by voting… It was such a tight race with nearly 1000 votes! A photo finish to the end – it was so close to ties for more than one place. Truly, I am beyond proud and humbled by the way the contest turned out and look forward to continuing it again next year! Excellent job to all 🙂
After a fun discussion in Kittyinaz’s facebook group about these wonderful two sentence horror stories credited to various Reddit users, some of us ladies were feeling inspired by them and the Halloween season. As short as they were, they had the feel of a writing prompt which is exactly what they became for many of us, but then I had the idea to take it further…
Why not have a little Halloween one-shot contest using these two sentence horror stories as prompts? Most seemed on board with the idea so I decided I’d host my fist ever writing contest in the form of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Spook Fest!
