The October Scary Story Event

Once again, we at The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine will be having a special short story writing event during the month of October. Basically the deal is this: write a scary story within the month of October, and submit it to us. The best story or two will be made into an episode of our show. It doesn’t have to be an idea you came up with during the month of October, just write the story in October. And be sure it’s scary. That’s all it takes. You have a little less than a month now, so you’d better get started.

When you submit your story, be sure to note in the subject line that it is for the October Scary Story Event. That is all, return to what you were doing. Thank you.

Listen to last year’s winners:
The Ghost Of Sadie Worth by Doug McIntire
Megan’s Bridge by Amanda Crum
Halloween In July by Kevin Anderson
The Artist by Alex Moisi

    And answer him in a kind of verse,
    Instead of send a tempting curse.
    Now while you charmed the other judges,
    Who apparently had no reasonable grudges;
    And they accepted your poetic work,
    I guess it’s my job to play the jerk.
    No scary poems, my online friend,
    ‘Cause if we accept yours, where will it end?
    “Nothing’s worse than poetry,” a great man once said.
    I don’t remember who it was, but I’m very sure he’s dead.

    The formatting question aside,
    I’m pretty sure Outfield just lied.
    “The point of the story:
    “Not to rhyme, but be gory!”
    Saying all former poets had di….


  7. If you have the choice between good stories late and bad stories on time, which would the rules choose?

    Of course, I’ll be the guy with the bad late story, but that’s for another time…

  8. I just submitted mine! I’m looking forward to hearing the submissions this year!
