Make your characters burn alive inside. I want tragedy, agony, pain and suffering. Doesn't matter how or what kind. Doesn't matter how gruesome it is. Rape, murder, torture, it's all good. I would prefer short stories, but poetry is acceptable. Entire books will probably not win unless they're very good. Limit of three entries per person.

EDIT: I can't handle the volume of submissions, so I've had to decrease the end date. I've burned through most of the submissions so far. I'd like to say that there's a lot of good work. I have 20 "finalists" that I must narrow down to six final winners.


Recognition for your work.
