No Happy Endings - Short Story  March 5, 2019 - March 21, 2019

Reading and Deliberating


5-10ish pages. Flexible on that if your story functions with less or slightly more. Unapologetic tragedy. Misfortune and suffering. I want to grow to love the protagonist as a brother would and then watch them dashed to nothingness against the rocky shore as wave after wave deny them the safety of the surface. Horror encouraged but certainly not mandatory. BONUS FOR STORIES WHICH TAKE PLACE AFTER MIDNIGHT. All entries will be read and reviewed thoroughly. Friend me. I want to be more active on this site. More connections would motivate that endeavor.
