Attention horror writers, do you have a story that will have readers running scared? Inkitt is hosting just the contest for you, the “Running Scared” Horror Writing Contest

What is Inkitt?

Inkitt, a free platform for writers to cultivate ideas and watch their stories grow, is holding
their second horror writing contest this month! Inkitt is a place where writers and readers
collaborate, giving each other feedback and improving their work. Inkitt wants to help writers
get the exposure they deserve and the publishing deals they covet without suffering the
frustrations and bias of traditional printing and self- publishing.

“Running Scared: The Most Terrifying Tale Ever Told.” In the tradition of classic horror
flicks and monster movies, we want the freakiest, flashiest fiction you can come up with. Make
us scream!

Frightening fiction up to 15,000 words. Entries must be posted on the Inkitt contest page to
be considered eligible. The contest opens on March 3rd and closes on March 31st . It is free to

votes, and the first, second, and third place winners will be chosen by Inkitt’s guest judges
(horror authors J.D. Horn , Armand Rosamilia , and J. Thorn ) from the top 10% of entries.
