Halloween is rapidly approaching and many of our profiles are getting ready for the holiday celebrations. I know most of what's in store for you folks during October, and I'm mightily impressed with the plans!


This week, _ShortStory_ are requesting submissions for an anthology titled "Campfire Tales" which will be released over the Halloween weekend. Imagine the scene: you're in the middle of nowhere, sat around smoldering logs of a campfire. It's so dark, you can't see beyond the circle of light cast by the glowing embers. What spooky story would you tell to scare your fellow camp mates?

Submissions should be no longer than 4K words and be written in English please. As always, please pay attention to spelling and grammar, and be aware that not all will be accepted. If you wish to have your work included, email your story in word format (either a doc or as part of the email text) along with your Wattpad username and which anthology you are applying for, to wattpad.shortstory@gmail.com All works will remain the sole property of the author.
