Byte Sized Horror Podcast HauntedMTL

Hey everyone! Do you love horror? Do you love to create a new world and express yourself in writing? If so—read on! We are looking for new and upcoming writers (If under 18 you must have your parent's permission!) of all backgrounds to be part of our Byte Sized Horror flash fiction roundup!

The premise is simple—we will provide a new writing prompt and select the top entry to include in our Byte Sized Horror podcast. We will read the winning story on our podcast and the winner will receive a cool bit of HauntedMTL swag so you can boast to your friends that you're a published author!

There might be only 1 winner per prompt, but we will give everyone who enters full feedback from our chief editor.

The prompts:

    Prompt: Local Urban Legend Closes on 30 Aug 21

    The quick rules:

    1) If under 18, you MUST get your parents’/guardians’ permission!

    2) You can enter for as many prompts as you want, but please only one entry per prompt.

    3) The submission has to be 800 words or fewer!

    4) You promise that everything you submitted is your own original work (that means no song lyrics or poems or lines from a movie unless you wrote the movie!).

    5) You give us permission to use your story on our podcast. All winners will receive a choice of a virtual bit of HauntedMTL swag or something byte sized sent to your address—remember you need your parents’ permission for this!

    Good luck to all who enter and we hope to see you see!

    Signed,

    Nicole and Mick, the co-hosts of the original creative horror story podcast made for kids.

    Note to Parents: Although this podcast is kid friendly, the full HauntedMTL website is not! Please review everything before you agree to the terms of submission. :)
