Short Story Contest Prompts 2019

  1. You started listening to a podcast about strange creatures in myths and legends. Jokingly, you start to put out offerings of bread and such, asking permission to cross bridges and fields. When one day you hear a small voice in your ear "no one has given me an offering in centuries"

  2. It's your first night at the haunted house and your door shuts close and locks itself. There's a ghost in the room with you, and it's trying to keep something else out.

  3. Write an old children's fairy tale but from the perspective of the villain without giving away which story it is until the very end. 

  4. You were one of the most powerful superheroes, and always in constant conflict with one of the most powerful supervillians. Then the day after you retire from the superhero business, you get a phone call. It's your arch-nemesis. They say "Hey um, do ya wanna hang out later? It's cool if ya can't"
