The Broken Mirror Story Event
Between April 1st and April 30th, 2009, write a short story based on the following premise:
SOMEONE ARRIVES IN TOWN AND DISCOVERS THAT EVERYONE THERE IS EXACTLY THE SAME.
This story can be any genre and of any length. However, our podcast usually buys Horror, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy stories, and we prefer stories longer than five hundred words.
A couple of rules:
- No multiple submissions, please. If you have more than one take on this idea, only send us the one you feel is best.
- Seriously, write the story in April, based on the idea we’ve presented. You can always rewrite an old story and present it as though it’s new, but if you do this, at least have the decency to lie about it.
- In the subject line of your email, mention that this is for the Broken Mirror Story Event (or the BMSE/BME).
- Even though the event ends on May 1st, we would rather get a complete, proofread story a couple of days late than a rushed story with typos and errors on April 29th.
Send the completed story in the body of an email to submissions(at)dunesteef.com (replacing the “at” with @. Thanks for participating and being a creative person (even if you own a dog)!
