Greetings, most esteemed writers, to Page Turner Magazine’s Fall Flash Fiction Contest! Gaze upon the carefully curated flash fiction prompt below. We deeply desire your flashiest, fictioniest genre writing.
For this contest, we are reveling in the autumnal season, the period of time when a writer’s mind is filled with thoughts of cozy warmth on a stormy night. Of yellow-gold leaves and a sudden gust of wind. Of dark corners and misplaced shadows. Of bone-chilling fear and hair-raising panic.
We speak of Horror. It can be the type of horror we are used to, a subversion of expectations, an unforeseen twist, or a deceitful and mind-bending story.
