“Running Scared” Horror Writing Contest From Inkitt.com


Attention horror writers, do you have a story that will have readers running scared? Inkitt is hosting just the contest for you, the “Running Scared” Horror Writing Contest

What is Inkitt?

Inkitt, a free platform for writers to cultivate ideas and watch their stories grow, is holding
their second horror writing contest this month! Inkitt is a place where writers and readers
collaborate, giving each other feedback and improving their work. Inkitt wants to help writers
get the exposure they deserve and the publishing deals they covet without suffering the
frustrations and bias of traditional printing and self- publishing.


“Running Scared: The Most Terrifying Tale Ever Told.” In the tradition of classic horror
flicks and monster movies, we want the freakiest, flashiest fiction you can come up with. Make
us scream!


Frightening fiction up to 15,000 words. Entries must be posted on the Inkitt contest page to
be considered eligible. The contest opens on March 3rd and closes on March 31st . It is free to
enter , and authors will retain all rights to all work submitted. Authors will collect community
votes, and the first, second, and third place winners will be chosen by Inkitt’s guest judges
(horror authors J.D. Horn , Armand Rosamilia , and J. Thorn ) from the top 10% of entries.


All entrants will have the chance to show their work to a growing community of authors and
readers hungry for high-quality fiction and win the following prizes:
$25 Amazon gift card, customized movie poster (and high-resolution .pdf file)
spotlighting the winner’s story, Inkitt custom mug, custom cover design for the
Inkitt story of their choice (created by Inkitt’s designer).
