Short Fiction Writing Contest
Submission Due Date:  November 30th, 2015

Thanks for your interest in The Shadowvane Podcast’s second writing contest!  We are here to entertain you, the fans, and we want to offer every opportunity to get you involved as possible.

For this contest, you are to pen a tale of short fiction.  Your story can be no longer than 1,000 words, so this could include any work of prose, poetry, or drama.

Please be sure your writing conforms to an appropriate genre for our show.  We are looking for works of horror, science fiction, and/or suspense.  Go ahead and give the contest a shot!

Below you will find the contest rules, prizes, and submission deadline.

Contest Rules:

  • Your story must fit the genres suited to our program.  This includes horror, science fiction, and/or suspense.  Any story outside these genres may not be considered for the contest.
  • You may submit either a short story, poem, or a radio drama script for this contest.
  • For this short fiction contest, you will need to limit yourself to 1,000 words.  Any stories longer than this may not be considered for the contest.
  • A person may only enter one story or script to be considered for the contest.
  • Submit your story to our e-mail address:  You can attach a Word document, a link to a Google Doc, or copy and paste the story into the e-mail.  Please keep in mind that copying and pasting the story may mess with the formatting of your story.

Contest Prizes:

We will go through all of our entries, and any winning ones will be read and produced on a future episode.

This time around, the winner(s) of this contest will be chosen by the fans of Shadowvane!

Winning stories will receive Shadowvane swag as well as bragging rights of having your story produced.
