hi i'm holding a contest! i honestly don't know if anyone will even participate, but i am in a reading-the-lovely-stuff-that-you-guys-write mood, so here we are. also, i've somehow convinced myself that i am qualified to judge something! so. a CONTEST!
prompts: i. the only thing
you can interpret the prompts in any way you want. you can also combine them, if you'd like. there will be winners for the contest as a whole, pulling from both prompts, as they are starting points, not necessities. i do not mind if you incorporate the prompt very loosely or even if you are just inspired by them (you can also follow them very specifically - anything goes). i'm looking for the quality of writing, not how well you can follow prompts that i may or may not have based on sufjan stevens songs.
rules: not much! i'll except any kind of creative writing: poems, short stories, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, etc.
please use the hashtag #ghostlycontest in the title of your piece.
no word limit.
deadline is april 1st.
leave a comment linking your piece if you are submitting it.
honorable mentions will also be recognized.
i will also explain why all the pieces that won, won.
okay! i think 4 weeks is a reasonable time to write something, but let me know if it is too short/too long/too something since i am horrible at judging whether things are reasonable or not. feel free to ask all the questions in the comments as i'm sure i have left out a bajillion things.
